http://www.nsba.org/FunctionNav/AboutNSBA.aspxThe National School Boards Association is a not-for-profit organization
representing state associations of school boards and their member
districts across the United States. Its mission is to foster excellence
and equity in public education through school board leadership. NSBA
achieves that mission by representing the school board perspective
before federal government agencies and with national organizations that
affect education, and by providing vital information and services to
state associations of school boards and local school boards.
NSBA advocates local school boards as the ultimate expression of
grassroots democracy. NSBA supports the capacity of each school
board—acting on behalf of and in close concert with the people of its
community—to envision the future of education in its community, to
establish a structure and environment that allow all students to reach
their maximum potential, to provide accountability to the community on
performance in the schools, and to serve as the key community advocate
for children and youth and their public schools.
Founded in 1940, NSBA represents its State Association members and
their 95,000 local school board members, virtually all of whom are
elected. These local officials govern 14,500+ local school districts
serving the nation's 50 million public school students.
NSBA policy is determined by a 150-member Delegate Assembly of local
school board members. The 25-member Board of Directors translates this
policy into action. Programs and services are administered by the NSBA
executive director and a 140-person staff. NSBA's office is located in
metropolitan Washington, D.C.
