About the Board of Education


  • ECS Board

     

    The Eufaula City Board of Education consists of five members appointed at large by the city council to rotating five year terms. Each board member is committed to the entire school district and donates their time and energy to the benefit of all of the schools and the entire community. The Board of Education conducts its business meetings in public, and the minutes of the meeting are public record. Conventionally, board meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the board room at the central office though occasionally meetings will be held at the various schools. Public attendance at board meetings is welcomed, and citizens may address the board by notifying Mrs. Susan Webb at (334) 687-1100, extension 102, at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled meeting.

A statement from Eufaula City Schools and Mr. Joey Brannan, superintendent, about Dr. James A. Lockwood:
 
Eufaula City Schools is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. James A. “Jimmy” Lockwood. 
 
Dr. Lockwood was a born and trusted leader with a remarkable talent for bringing people together. It was amazing to watch him guide his fellow board members and provide the support needed to reach an agreement.
 
He and his family have made Eufaula City Schools and Eufaula a better place by their dedication and the giving of their hearts, time, wisdom, ideas and advice. We will miss Dr. Lockwood’s warmth, his calm demeanor, his youthful smile, and his enduring passion for improving the lives of the students in Eufaula.
 
Under his leadership as a board member, Eufaula City Schools has been through many changes including new buildings, extensive renovations, different curriculums and programs and many new faces.
 
His love for students and education was apparent to everyone who met him. We are comforted knowing the tremendous impact he had on the lives of young people for over twenty-five years as he served on the board.
 
We extend our sincere condolences and prayers to his wife, Cindy, their sons, Bobby and Jay, his mother, Mrs. Dorothy Anne, and the rest of his family and many friends.
 
Dr. Lockwood will be missed by all who knew him, yet his influence will live on.
