Board of Education

Charlton L Bivins

District Nine
Four Year Term: January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2014

Charlton L. Bivins was elected to the Clayton County Board of Education in December 2008 to fill an unexpired term for the seat representing District 9. Mr. Bivins was elected to serve as Board Vice-Chair in January 2011.

While on the Board, Mr. Bivins has envisioned, promoted and instituted initiatives such as "500 Men Standing in the Gap" (Male/Fatherhood Initiative). Before this initiative less than 10% of the district's schools had male volunteer programs, compared to over 60% of the Clayton County schools now having men's outreach groups. This initiative sparked interest in the creation of "500 Women standing in the Gap". Both initiatives have potential to become a beacon for the school district and the community. He has been involved in the Archway Project (Community based Initiative), and the Clayton Action Nexus (School/Student Safety Initiative). He is an avid supporter of Judge Teske's "Alternative to Incarceration" juvenile justice program as well as the NAACP's stance on educational minority practices regarding juveniles entitled "The School to Prison Pipeline" doctrine.

Mr. Bivins is recognized by his "civic" duties in his community. He is involved in the Clayton Co. Council of PTA's, Clayton Collaborative Grassroots Leadership Initiative, Clayton-Henry Chapter of National Action Network (NAN), Clayton County Chamber of Commerce, and various other non-profit organizations. He has coached various youth sports associated with Clayton County Parks and Recreation, to include Forest Park, Morrow, Lake City, Jonesboro and Rex parks. He currently is on the Board of Directors for the Nicholas House and regularly mentors at the Nicholas House, a transitional home for full homeless families in Atlanta. He has been in leadership positions or served on numerous non-profit boards including C4 - Concerned Citizens of Clayton Co. , Inc., HUGS, Inc., Grassroots Leadership, Inc. and the Salvation Army Advisory Board in Clayton County, Clayton Co. Dept. of Health Safe Kids Advisory Board and FCLA Advisory Board.

His advocacy and community involvement has been recognized by the Clayton County Council of PTA's, the school district, and various community organizations in the form of various awards received. He has spoken and motivated crowds through informative and inspirational presentations across the state of Georgia on "Child Advocacy", " School and Child Safety", Male/Fatherhood Initiatives, law enforcement topics and various civic leadership ideologies.

He has lived in Clayton County for nearly twenty-six years and has three children and three grandchildren. His three children graduated from the Clayton County Schools.

His philosophy is that, "The heartbeat of a community, state or nation rest in the education of its children. Education is more than just classrooms. The progress of society truly starts with the A-Academics, B-Basic Family values, and C-Community involvement."
