Who Are Our Members and What Do They Do?

Our members comprise 49 state school boards associations. State school boards associations are nonprofit organizations that represent more than 90,000 local school board members who are dedicated to educating every child to his or her fullest potential and committed to leadership for student achievement. Local school board members govern 13,809 local school districts serving the nation's 50 million public school students.

State school boards associations offer training and other services to help support school board members in their work. They help with policy writing, legal matters, insurance, superintendent searches, and other issues. They also track state legislation and advocate for school boards, local governance, and public schools to state legislatures.
