Consortium of State School Boards Associations




Founded by state school boards associations in late 2021, the Consortium of State School Boards Associations (COSSBA) is a non-partisan, national alliance dedicated to sharing resources and information to support, promote and strengthen state school boards associations as they serve their local school districts and board members.

COSSBA is voluntary, non-partisan federation of state school boards associations focused on:

  • Support for the work of state school boards associations through effective staff collaboration, networking, and shared resources
  • Networking opportunities for local school board members and association board members to enhance the effectiveness of their work
  • Tracking and advocating for federal education issues and policies impacting local school boards and public education aligned with a statement of core values and beliefs of COSSBA
  • Federal judicial advocacy impacting local control and public education
