Board of Education


Resolution to Request State Legislature to Strengthen Board Ethics Policy

Clayton County Public Schools is your school system, and you are welcome at all Board meetings. Your interest and involvement are important in helping Clayton County Public Schools remain one of the best school systems in metro Atlanta and Georgia.

The nine members of the Clayton County Board of Education are citizens who are elected to serve staggered four-year terms. The Board establishes general policies, approves expenditures and appointments, sets the tax rate, and decides school sites and construction. The Board is advised and informed of school needs and progress by the superintendent, who is responsible for school district administration.
