NCSBA is the professional organization that represents local boards of education in North Carolina. It is a member-driven association that supports the school governance team—school board members, superintendents, senior administrative staff and board assistants—in its complex leadership role. We help develop, communicate and advocate for the perspective of North Carolina school districts.
The North Carolina School Boards Association, like many organizations, has a history of growth. As public education has become more complex and the role of the local board of education more important, school board members and school system administrators have looked to NCSBA for leadership and services.
By working collectively through NCSBA, North Carolina school boards have a significant impact on public education at the state and federal levels. It is a critical presence that would otherwise not exist. In addition, board members and administrators have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of programs and services designed to improve effectiveness and save schools money.
NCSBA provides a sophisticated level of advocacy and policy analysis on behalf of public education and children. Serving as a unified voice for school districts, the association fosters effective relationships with the legislature, the governor’s office, Congress, administrative agencies and educational organizations. NCSBA’s commentary and analyses of critical education issues are used by board members, superintendents, and state and national leaders.
NCSBA leadership includes a Delegate Assembly, Board of Directors and Executive Committee that set the direction for association activity and training.
