SBMA's mission is to promote high-quality school board governance training that emphasizes excellence in education and addresses the distinctive needs of each student. We believe education should prioritize traditional academics, provide students with opportunities for growth and recovery in reading and math, and celebrate their academic achievements. We are staunch advocates for creating safe and challenging learning environments for all children.
Our trainings equip school board members with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed decisions that positively impact their communities. We focus on a range of essential topics, including common sense policies, parental rights, school choice, transparent governance, and fiscal responsibility.
SBMA is dedicated to ensuring equal access to a quality education for every child and creating a positive learning experience that supports their individual needs. Through our school board trainings, SBMA emphasizes the importance of celebrating student achievements and promoting a culture of excellence.
Safety is paramount in our vision for education. We advocate for protected learning environments where students can develop and grow without compromising their security. We are dedicated to supporting policies and practices that prioritize the safety of students and division employees.
