The Richmond County School System is an American public school system based in Augusta, Georgia. It is run by the Richmond County Board of Education which is required under Article VIII, § V, Paragraph 2 which requires that each school system be under the management and control of an elected board of education. As elected Constitutional officials of Georgia the board members are responsible for education in Richmond County. The board of education meets in the Richmond County Board of Education building on 864 Broad Street in Augusta, Georgia. It serves consolidated Augusta-Richmond County, Georgia and the south Richmond County cities of Hephzibah and Blythe. The system has an enrollment of around 33,000 students, attending 36 elementary schools, ten middle schools, eight high schools, four magnet schools, and three other schools. The school board has its own police department which provides law enforcement services to all the district's schools.[5]

The Richmond County School System is in the third phase of a construction program that will renovate older schools and add new schools, particularly for its magnet program. This will include a fine arts elementary magnet school, a vocational magnet school, and second magnet traditional elementary school.[6]
