“A statewide unifying voice for public education; MSBA supports and empowers Minnesota public school boards through advocacy, board development, and policy and legal guidance.”
The Minnesota School Boards Association is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1920. As a leading advocate for public education, we support, promote, and strengthen the work of Minnesota school boards. We are located in St. Peter and employ more than 20 staff members with over 150 years of combined experience in the areas of governance, management, finance, communications, policy, legal matters, elections, and advocacy. MSBA provides workshops, resources, services, and connections designed to help boards save time, reduce expenses, govern efficiently, and stay inspired. By working through MSBA, school boards from schools of every size and location — small and large, urban and rural — can ensure the needs of their school are met.
