Support for School Boards

Our main areas of support


AASB’s mission is to develop excellent school board leaders through quality training, advocacy, and services. AASB’s more than 900 members of boards of education represent 139 local boards of education and other governing boards. AASB offers various levels and types of membership.


Advocacy is more than supporting a position; it's also about speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Alabama's school boards are expected to use their voice to translate for state policymakers the diverse needs and challenges of public education in their communities.


Providing school board leaders quality training is a key tenet of the Alabama Association of School Boards' mission statement. AASB offers coursework throughout the year in face-to-face sessions and 24 hours a day through the School Board U leadership development portal.


By pooling resources through its membership, the Alabama Association of School Boards provides services which one school board could not economically provide alone. Our services range from publications and strategic planning to policy analysis, risk management and evaluations.
