Area School Board Associations

This collaboration is characterized by a focus on addressing contemporary educational issues, thereby establishing a strong foundation for continuous growth and dedicated service to the education community. The Area School Board Associations reflect a steadfast commitment to networking and providing essential support/training to trustees in their crucial roles.

Affinity School Board Associations

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 in Texas public schools, and for English language learners, whose enrollment continues to increase in our schools.

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 educational 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 African 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 African-American school board members and students throughout the state;
  • Serve as an official advisory body on matters relating to issues of concern to African-American 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 African-American school board members, their local communities, and local school boards; the Texas Association of School Boards; and other education organizations; and
  • Provide a means whereby African-American school board members can actively participate in the state and national dialogue on educational problems, issues, and concerns.
