The MISSION of the Florida School Boards Association is to increase student achievement through the development of effective school board leadership and advocacy for public education.

The Florida School Boards Association, Inc. (FSBA) is a nonprofit corporation representing the elected school boards in Florida.  FSBA has been the collective voice for Florida school districts since 1930 and is closely allied with other educational and community agencies to work toward improvement of education in Florida.
