Welcome to MASBA

(Mexican American School Board Members Association)
The Mexican-American School Board Members Association (MASBA) is committed to help school board members come together to find solutions, discuss legislature and current affairs as it relates to education and the Mexican-American culture. We know that Texas school districts are experiencing an unprecedented growth and in many cases lack the understanding and resources associated with ensuring the most appropriate and effective curriculum implementation, as it directly relates to the Mexican-American culture. Therefore we have designed a very special targeted conference held in January of each year which offers Texas school board members the opportunity to understands these challenges and to assists school board districts as a whole, or as individuals, to present, discuss, promote the advancement and relevance of the Mexican-American culture in public education as it impacts your local school operations and administrative growth.

MASBA is recognized by the TEA in which attendees earn their CEU Credits during attendance. Additionally, MASBA is a proactive organization
introducing policy and programs on a state level which ultimately may affect your district and many other districts throughout Texas.

MASBA honors the legacy of 40 years of historic growth our founders provided and stands united with you and all Texas school districts to provide leadership, vision and support for a growing number of school board members that represent school districts with demographic profiles represented by a large number of Mexican-American students. Our roots are imbedded in the civil rights era. Our charge: See to it that these children were not taken advantage of through legislation, governance, policy or regulation in order to comply with the desegregation of the nation’s public school system.

We invite you to consider membership in the Mexican American School Board Association. Paid membership allows your school board and superintendent to attend the annual conference where all registration fees are waived and where fellowship and learning is celebrated.

We are an accredited training organization, affiliated with TEA, and welcome a state wide membership.
