Agenda
Elaina Beeman, who has served on the Rome City School Board since January 2014, has been elected the Georgia School Boards Association District Director for District 7. “To be considered for this position, half of our local school board had to write a letter of recommendation for me and all of our board members signed off on the decision, including our chairperson,” Beeman said. “Then I had to campaign for the District Director of GSBA by speaking to all District 7 school board members. I am most excited about getting to engage with other board members. We meet so many people at conferences and we get to have brief conversations with them, but we rarely have a chance to really exchange information and become better advocates for our students.” During her three-year term, Beeman will work with other school systems to develop best practices, oversee financial reporting, develop strategic plans, act as a liaison with school boards within her district for services and programs, as well as many other board responsibilities. Beeman will assume the role of GSBA District Director in June at the GSBA Summer Conference. Rome City Board members will meet with other Georgia boards in Savannah. The conference will run June 8-10.
