Vidalia City Board of Education

Through the years the organization and development of the Vidalia City School System has been dependent upon interested people with leadership ability beginning with the original eleven members of the Board of Education. Today, the board of education consists of five board members who are elected to four-year terms of office and represent constituents in the four city wards with one member at-large.

Meetings of the Vidalia City Board of Education (VBOE) are held the second Tuesday of each month at 5:00 PM in the board room at the Vidalia City Board of Education Office Building at 1001 North Street, West, Vidalia, Georgia. The VBOE also conducts luncheon meetings at 12:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month (except November - 3rd Thursday) when school is in session and they are held at the schools on a rotating basis.

Policy development in a modern, forward-looking school system is a dynamic, ongoing process. New problems, concerns, issues, and needs give rise to the continuing need to develop new policies or to revise existing ones.

The Vidalia City School District operates according to policies established by the Board. The Board, which represents both the State and local community, develops the policies after careful deliberation, and the school administration implements them through specific rules and regulations. The Board then appraises the effects of its policies and makes revisions as necessary.

In the interest of harmony, efficiency, uniformity of interpretation, coordination of effort, and in fairness to all concerned, the Board makes this manual available to all who are affected by its policies. This will enable the Board to devote more time to its primary duty - the development of long- range policies and planning for the future of the school system.
