The Missouri State Board of Education (State Board) currently does not have a quorum and has not been able to conduct official business for several months. Yet, it has important responsibilities. MSBA has developed a number of resources to help school board members better understand how the State Board is selected and understand how decisions made by the State Board directly impact their public school district.

Some duties of the State Board include:

  • appointing the Commissioner of Education,
  • create state regulations impacting public school districts,
  • set Missouri Learning Standards,
  • grant, discipline and revoke teaching certificates.
