Dublin City Board of Education Receives Leading Edge Award for Effective Communications

The Georgia School Boards Association recognized the Dublin City Board of Education as a recipient of the Leading Edge Award during last week’s Georgia School Superintendents Association/GSBA Winter Conference. 

     This unique achievement highlights districts and school boards that are leading the way in ensuring students are competitive in an ever-changing global market.  Dublin City Schools was granted the Leading Edge Award for its Districtwide Communications Plan and was commended for its dedication to fostering robust communication across all stakeholders.  

     “Our school district has an amazing story to tell, and strategic communications amplify what we’re able to share,” said Superintendent Dr. Fred Williams.  “We’re humbled and honored to receive the Leading Edge Award.  It speaks to the collective and collaborative approach to communication that we have in this great school system.” 

     The district utilizes various channels like social media, videos, our website, advisory councils, Learning, Listening & Loving sessions as well as regular updates including Lead Learner Updates, Principal Weekly Updates, Board Briefs and What’s Up Next to ensure our students, staff, parents and community know what’s happening across the Fighting Irish Family. 

     The Leading Edge Award was open to all school districts in Georgia and spans the following nine categories: Continuous Improvement, Communication, Early Learning & Student Success, Teaching & Learning, Teaching & Learning Resources, Human & Organizational Capital, Governance, Leadership & Accountability, Culture, Climate & Organizational, and Financial Resources. 

      Dublin City Schools was one of only two districts in the state to receive the award for Communications.
