Celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January

SCSBA joins school districts throughout the state in saluting the more than 600 school board members during South Carolina School Board Recognition Month. The theme — School Board Strong — highlights the unique role school boards play in championing and advocating for quality education and the ownership they take for governing their local public schools. As the elected/appointed representatives of the people in their local communities, they represent their local communities’ voice and vision for their public schools.

New! Introducing the SCSBA Sharing Hub

The SCSBA Sharing Hub is a place for board members to share successful programs, initiatives and ideas. Click here to join the SCSBA Sharing Hub Facebook group. Once you “join the group,” you will be able to make posts, attach files and share photographs and videos that will help others understand the great programs happening in your district. The sharing hub is an idea that was developed by SCSBA President Wesley Hightower and SCSBA staff as a place for board members to collaborate, with the goal of expanding opportunities for all students. School Board members, school districts staff, Associates and Affiliates are encouraged to join.
