Betty Farley Selected A4LE Southeast Region President
Betty Farley, Executive Director of Planning and Demographics, has been named the Association for Learning Environment’s (A4LE) Southeast Region President. The announcement was made during the organization’s International Conference in Atlanta last weekend. The Southeast Region includes 550 members from nine states.
Mrs. Farley has been involved with A4LE for 15 years, serving as the South Carolina Chapter president in 2011 as well as service on various committees, including A4LE’s Strategic Planning process.
“My career in public education has, and continues to be, rewarding because I am passionate about ensuring that great planning contributes to academic success as well as strong community and parental support of schools,” said Mrs. Farley. “The wealth of resources available through A4LE has provided me with knowledge that has contributed to the success of our planning process, robust school choice programs, and continued cutting edge educational initiatives.” Mrs. Farley looks forward to supporting the Southeast region through efforts to grow membership and bring even more value to its members.
Mrs. Farley has served Greenville County Schools since 1984 and as Executive Director of Planning and Demographics since 1995. She is proud of GCS’s planning process which keeps abreast of the latest in school planning and construction to complement instructional programs for students.
A4LE’s sole mission is improving the places where children learn. A4LE is the primary advocate and resource for effective educational facilities. A4LE believes that facilities impact the learning, development and behavior of the facility user (student) and the planning process is essential for quality facilities.
