Public School Districts
Membership in MSBA benefits local boards of education and school districts in many ways. By working with MSBA, school boards have a major impact on education policy at the state and national levels. MSBA is a delegate-driven organization. The Delegate Assembly determines the positions MSBA takes on education issues. Members have access to legal and policy assistance, board training opportunities, the superintendent search service, major events such as our Annual Conference, and numerous cost-saving and revenue-enhancing programs.
