Local Education Leadership For the 21st Century

Delaware School Boards Association is one of the members of the family of state School Board Associations which now exist in nearly every state in the country. The Delaware Association was organized in 1946 and became a member of the National School Boards Association in 1952.

The purpose of this Association is to encourage and foster equity of thought and action of Delaware school boards and to further the educational interests in the State. A principal function of the Association is the study of school needs along with the proposal and/or support of legislation to provide for those needs. We also provide on-going board member training, facilitate policy research, assist with superintendent selection processes, provide guidelines for board and superintendent evaluations, and serve as a liaison with other education related organizations.
