Read Qualifies for School Board Chair; Poll

Would you vote for Read if the election was today?

Janet Read announced Friday that she had qualified for School Board Chairperson in the election.

Her announcement follows:

With the ink barely dry on the new district maps, Janet Read filed paperwork and fees and qualified to run for the newly created County-wide School Board Chairperson position on Wednesday, May 23.

Read was first elected to the Cherokee County School Board in 2004, and has served as a member and in leadership positions, twice as Chair and twice as Vice Chair, representing Post 4. In addition, Read has been a member of the PTA since 1998, serving as PTA president at Bascomb Elementary, and holding committee chair positions at Chapman Intermediate, ET Booth Middle and Etowah High Schools, where she currently serves as Membership Chair.

During her 8-year tenure with the Cherokee County School Board, the district has met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standards, as set by the Federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB); and the district has seen a significant rise in SAT scores.

In February, 2011, Read was named to Georgia's 53-member Education Advisory Board by Governor Nathan Deal.

One of Read's most notable qualities is her accessibility, and she is regularly invited to speak to citizen groups, business organizations and PTAs, and to attend events that include parents, teachers and students in Cherokee County. 

As a School Board Member, Read recognizes that her role is to represent the interests of the parents, students and teachers of Cherokee County, and she has been present at every School Board meeting since her election to the Board in 2004.

Her goal is to continue to ensure that the School Board focuses not on power, but on representing the citizens of the county as an advocate of education.
