Elections

Voter and candidate information

The Richmond County Board of Education consists of ten members elected to four-year terms. Eight members are elected by by district , while two members are elected at large . Georgia school districts with nonpartisan boards tend to hold their elections during May primaries. Richmond County School System holds its nonpartisan elections during the November general election because the state election law does not mention the county by name when referencing election dates. This omission means that the state law does not match the district’s charter, allowing the district to hold its elections during the general election. [2]

The candidate filing period for Georgia school board candidates lasted from March 7, 2016, to March 11, 2016. Prospective candidates for nonpartisan offices submitted declarations of candidacy with their county election offices. The voter registration deadline for the general election was October 11, 2016.
The following dates were key deadlines for Richmond County’s nonpartisan school board elections in 2016: [3]

Deadline Event

School board opposition to Amendment 1

School boards throughout Georgia passed resolutions opposing a state constitutional amendment that would have changed how failing schools are governed in the state. Amendment 1, which was up for a yes/no vote on November 8, 2016, would have allowed the state to create an Opportunity School District (OSD) to govern “chronically failing” schools. If approved, the OSD would be run by a governor-appointed superintendent with the power to directly manage districts, share governance with school boards, or change schools into charter schools. Gov. Nathan Deal (R) and StudentsFirst Georgia supported the measure , while the Georgia Association of Educators and the Georgia Parent-Teacher Association opposed Amendment 1 . The measure was defeated on November 8, 2016.

A “yes” vote supported authorizing the state to form an Opportunity School District that would govern certain elementary and secondary schools determined to be “chronically failing.” [6]
A “no” vote opposed authorizing the state to form an Opportunity School District that would govern certain elementary and secondary schools determined to be “chronically failing,” thereby continuing to have school boards/districts supervise respective schools. [6]

Board members expressed concerns about state intervention in school administration after approving resolutions of opposition. “All this does is take authority away from, not just local school systems, but from local taxpayers and parents,” said Barrow County board member Lynn Stevens (R). [7] Cherokee County board chair Kyla Cromer (R) said, “The big part of this in my mind is that as a member of this school board our job is to protect the children of Cherokee County, and I see no benefit in this to them.” [8] “Why doesn’t the state give local boards the finances to be able to do the things that they’re saying they can do?” said Newton County board member Almond Turner (D). [8] Richmond County board president Helen Minchew expressed concern about allowing the state to take control over local schools, saying “we have a way of communicating, we visit our schools, we stay in touch, and it’s the essence of local control.” [9]

The following table lists basic information on resolutions of opposition approved by school boards with November 2016 elections covered by Ballotpedia:

District Resolution date Vote
Barrow County September 13, 2016 7-1 [10]
Cherokee County September 1, 2016 7-0 [11]
Clayton County September 6, 2016 9-0 [12]
Dougherty County September 28, 2016 7-0 [13]
Fayette County August 19, 2016 5-0 [14]
Newton County June 21, 2016 5-0 [15]
Richmond County August 18, 2016 9-0 [9]

Proponents of the amendment argued that new solutions are needed for the district’s low-performing schools. According to Georgia Leads on Education, 127 Georgia schools were considered to be “failing” by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement in September 2016. Schools are marked as “failing” if they received a College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) score that was below 60 in 2013, 2014, and 2015. The state had 181 school districts with over 2,200 schools in the September 2016 report. Dougherty County School System (4) and Richmond County School System (19) were two districts with November 2016 elections that had schools on the list and opposed the amendment. Below is a table showing the official failing schools and their respective districts from September 2016: [16] [17] [18]
