The South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA), a non-profit organization, serves as a source of information and as a statewide voice for boards governing the 79 public school districts.
At the annual Delegate Assembly, representatives from each school district meet to elect officers, adopt resolutions to guide the association, act on constitutional changes and conduct other business.
SCSBA, as a member of the National School Boards Association, supports the four major roles envisioned for all of the nation’s school boards: vision, basic structure, accountability and advocacy.
Services include a year-round training program known as the Boardmanship Institute, legislative advocacy, publications, policy services, superintendent searches and a variety of on-site customized services for school boards.
