Superintendent Cox to Visit Schools in Coweta and Fayette Counties

State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox is heading to Coweta and Fayette Counties on Monday for "Back to School" visits.

"These visits give me the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the people on the front lines of education in Georgia," said Superintendent Cox. "I am always excited to get into schools and see the learning that is happening around the state, especially at the beginning of a new school year."

"What I learn on the road has a big impact on the work of the Georgia Department of Education and the State Board of Education," she said.

Traveling to Georgia's schools and visiting with local educators is part of the State School Superintendent's job description (O.C.G.A. 20-2-35), but Superintendent Cox has taken it to a new level. Since taking office in 2003, she has visited over 500 schools in every school system in the state.
