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.
