"Keeping Children First in Bibb County"

Dr. Thelma Dillard

I am honored to serve as the Bibb District 2 School Board Representative. I have been an educator for over half of my life.  Now, I am looking forward to bringing my experiences in education to the School Board to make policies covering the operation of the County School District.

It is my goal to work with the board and superintendent to ensure that all students attain high levels of achievement in all content areas by focusing on the Georgia Performance Standards.  My goals also include working with fellow board members and the superintendent to assure that our teachers are supported through morale building incentives, and to work to improve discipline for a safe learning environment. 

 I did my doctoral Dissertation on Parental Involvement because parents are a very significant part of academic achievement for our children, and I will work with the board to provide a friendly and open policy for our parents to help our children to succeed. Open and clear communication with the public will always be one of my top concerns.
