Minority School Board Associations

Connect with our sister state school boards associations that focus on minorities.

Mexican American School Boards Association

The Mexican American School Boards Association (MASBA) is a voluntary, nonprofit, statewide education association that has served local Texas school boards since 1970. MASBA is focused on closing gaps in Texas public schools, particularly for Latinx students, who comprise the majority of students, and for English language learners who are expected to comprise 20 percent of the Texas public school student population by 2020.

Additionally, MASBA is committed to providing high-quality continuing education opportunities for Texas superintendents and school board members, with a special focus on equity issues and the closing of gaps, and the organization actively advocates at the state and federal level on behalf of its members.

Texas Caucus of Black School Board Members

The Texas Caucus of Black School Board Members (TCBSBM) is a nonprofit organization that speaks on behalf of quality education for Black Americans in the state of Texas, advocating at the state and federal level. TCBSBM’s mission is to:

  • Provide a forum for the unique issues faced by Black school board members and Black students throughout the state
  • Serve as an official advisory body on matters relating to issues of concern to Black school board members and to positions on the Texas Association of School Boards and the National School Boards Association
  • Promote better relationships and understanding between Black school board members, their local communities, and local school boards; the Texas Association of School Boards; and the National School Boards Association
  • Provide a means whereby Black school board members can actively participate in the state and national dialogue on educational problems, issues, and concerns, as well as opportunities within the Texas Association of School Boards, National School Boards Association, and other national organizations committed to the full growth and development of Black and other minority children
