Join Our Community for Change
The heart and soul of School Board Partners is YOU. While we provide resources, support and training, often the biggest value comes from simply being in community with other diverse leaders who are motivated to break down inequitable systems to help all students thrive.
Our community will be stronger with you in it.
Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.
— Margaret Mead
