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

Message from the President

Dear NTAASB Members & Friends:


Welcome back!


The excitement and anticipation of another school year are in the air.


It’s once again the time when every teacher, administrator, student, and parent is getting ready for another school year. Teachers are busy putting the final touches on their classrooms, administrators are making sure their schools are ready to receive students on their first day of school, students are trying to adjust to the routine of going to bed and waking up early, and last, but not least, parents are busy finding school clothes and supplies.


We at the North Texas Area Association of School Boards (NTAASB) also are busy preparing for this school year. We are identifying and choosing program dates, topics, and speakers who will be engaging, timely, informative, and relevant to the work we do as trustees in our public schools. We will host four programs during the 2018-19 school year.


If you are currently a NTAASB member, thank you for your continue participation and support. If you and your fellow board members currently are not members, please consider joining our professional organization. You will find out about issues that impact your school districts and campuses, such as school safety, legislative priorities and mandates, A-F performance ratings, school funding, and school finance reform. You also have the opportunity to network with colleagues AND you receive 2.0 hours of continued training credits for each meeting you attend.


I am honored to serve as our organization’s president for this school year, and I welcome the opportunity to be of service to the school board members and school districts in ESC Regions 10 and 11. Together, we offer our service to our students, teachers, school districts, and communities.


NTAASB invites you to join us at our first meeting on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 as well as at our breakfast networking social on Saturday morning, September 29, at the TASA/TASB Convention in Austin.


I wish you the very best start to a fabulous school year!
