Board Members / Chain of Command


    The Paulding County School District’s desire is to respond to stakeholders’ concerns and/or questions as quickly and effectively as possible. In the Paulding County School District, the chain of command refers to communication levels of authority in the school district. Our District institutes the Chain of Command to provide stakeholders at all levels with a person they may ask questions or report complaints. The value of having an established Chain of Command is an efficient tool that provides a roadmap when reporting concerns or communicating with school staff members.
