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.
Our advocacy efforts are directed to the general public and policy makers on the local, state, and national level and focus on imparting a better understanding and appreciation of the successes and challenges of our public education system. FSBA has earned recognition as a firm and credible authority on education policy and takes pride in keeping members well informed about education related news and events throughout the year.
Our Leadership Services Department offers high quality training and programs that help School Boards maximize their leadership and governance while maintaining a focus on student achievement. Each having served on a Florida school board, our leadership development consultants are uniquely qualified to lead board members in the quest for maximum effectiveness.
FSBA offers expert assistance and qualified, professional support for one of the most crucial decisions that a school board will make. FSBA will perform all or any portion of the process of locating candidates for a school district on a cost basis. Through FSBA’s facilitation, a school board is advised and guided on each step of the process which includes continuous interaction with the school board. The school board makes the ultimate decision and controls the process with expert management and logistical assistance from FSBA.
