State Board Decisions

The State Board of Education decides appeals of decisions rendered by local boards of education in matters of school law pursuant to O.C.G.A. 20-2-1160. The appeals primarily involve matters relating to student discipline and the discipline and termination of certificated personnel, although any matter of school law can be appealed. The State Board has been issuing written decisions in these appeals since the 1970's. Eventually all written decisions of the State Board will be posted on the web in a searchable format.
