About Us

Our Vision & Mission

In addition to hosting up to four events per year, NTAASB is also a proud sponsor of the TASB Grassroots Meetings

that afford trustees the opportunities to participate in formulation of the TASB Legislative Advocacy Agenda.    

Message from the President

Dear NTAASB Members & Friends:


It is hard to believe that another school year quickly is coming to an end!


I know that we are all disappointed by the cancellation of our April 17th North Texas Area Association of School Boards (NTAASB) meeting at Cannon Elementary in Grapevine-Colleyville ISD. Due to the forecast for severe storms in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, we felt it prudent to cancel our event rather than risk damage to our vehicles or sustain personal injury. I have no doubt that we would have held an outstanding event.


Thank you for your understanding and our apologies for any inconvenience this postponement may have caused. Due to commitments of board members and superintendents at year-end celebrations, banquets, and graduations, we are planning to reschedule our April 17th program for next fall. We will make every effort to reschedule the Presidents' Forum for either our September or November 2019 meeting.


As this school year comes to an end, local school board members who serve on the NTAASB Board of Directors will be busy planning for next school year's program. We once again will make every effort to provide our members with the topics, speakers, network opportunities, resources, and continuing education credits to best represent and advocate for your students and school district.


We welcome suggestions for topics and speakers. As a reminder, we will hold only three NTAASB evening meetings this coming school year because TASB will be conducting Grassroots meetings in ESC Regions 10 and 11 in early spring. Please forward suggestions to me at: cmredu@gmail.com


Again, if you and your district are currently NTAASB members, we thank you for your participation and continued support. If you and your district are not yet members, we ask that you consider joining. It is a very worthwhile investment and learning experience.


Thank you for all you do for your students, school district, and community!
