Our Vision & Mission

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

Message from the President

NTAASB Members and Friends,

 

I am excited to serve in my second year as the North Texas Area Association of School Boards (NTAASB) President for 2017-2018.   During the 2016-2017 school year, our four programs were filled with a lot of energy and enthusiasm, including the annual TASA/TASB Breakfast.  There were many great ideas shared on how to advocate positions of needs in the present and future to effect change to sustain and enhance the learning environments across the area. Beyond sharing information, we were able to network with our peers to establish and grow relationships with our fellow trustees and administrators. Through our meetings last year, we were able to interact with our peer districts and learn more about what they are doing to influence the lives of students. The NTAASB Board looks forward to another exciting year with great conversations, networking, and optimism despite the challenges before us.  The NTAASB provides an opportunity for all of the participating members to grow by learning from one another and applying that knowledge to be a more productive and effective trustee.

 

At the onset of the 85th legislative session, school districts were hopeful that public education would be supported with policy improvements and increased funding. However, we are left with a pending special 30-day session where there is a lot of uncertainty.  We should be very thankful to the elected officials in the Texas House and Senate that have endured a grueling session and supported public education consistently throughout the regular session. It is quite evident that we have to work closer together as districts, be strategic both individually and collectively in our message to stakeholders, and we should never give up hope.  We will have an opportunity during our Grassroots Meetings in 2018 to define our priorities and select a group of representatives for the Legislative Advisory Council to be our voice once again for Regions 10 and 11. 

 

In conclusion, congratulations to every district comprising the NTAASB on the successes achieved academically, athletically, in extracurricular activities, as well as their staff achievements during the 2016-2017 school year and I wish everyone even more successes for 2017-2018.

 

Sincerely,

Anthony Hill
