Georgia Charter Schools Association is pleased to welcome RaShaun Holliman back to GCSA as Vice President of Policy and Advocacy.
He most recently served as the Director of the Office of Community Schools at the Ohio
Department of Education (ODE), the state office responsible for the oversight of Ohio’s charter schools and their authorizers. His experience in educational leadership, administration, advocacy and charter school operations helped him contribute to major reforms of Ohio’s charter school policy environment. Prior to joining ODE in this integral leadership role, Holliman served briefly as President and CEO of the Ohio Alliance of Public Charter Schools.
Most GCSA members and friends remember Holliman’s work as Vice President of Outreach and Communications for the GCSA where he traveled the state of Georgia advocating for charter schools and assisting communities seeking to develop their own charter schools. Prior to this, he served as Principal of Focus Learning Academy East in Columbus, Ohio, a dropout prevention charter high school.
Before leaving Atlanta previously, he had served as Chair of his NPU and was a New Leaders Council Fellow and board member. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, he received his B.A. in Political Science from Wright State University and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Capella University.
Tony Roberts, President and CEO of GCSA, said, “we are extremely fortunate to have RaShaun back on our team as a seasoned advocate and leader in the Georgia charter school scene.”
