Thank You to All the MSBA Delegates!

An MSBA Delegate is a school board member that has been appointed by his or her school board to serve as a liaison with MSBA.  Every MSBA member district is entitled to at least one Delegate and some larger districts are entitled to additional Delegates.   If a school district does not specifically designate a Delegate, MSBA will presume that the Board President is the Delegate for the district.

A Delegate has the following responsibilities:

  • Serve as the Liaison between MSBA and the local board of
    education.
  • Report monthly to the local board on important issues identified
    by MSBA, including state and national issues and opportunities and concerns
    related to public schools.
  • Actively participate in the development and promotion of MSBA
    Advocacy Positions.
  • Attend and participate in the MSBA Delegate Assemblies.

MSBA encourages districts to also appoint one or more Alternate Delegates to
serve in the absence of the Delegate.  Most districts designate a Delegate
and Alternate Delegate at the school board’s reorganization meeting in the
spring.

MSBA has scheduled Delegate Assemblies for the following dates:

  • June 8, 2019
  • September 27, 2019
