The goal of SCSBA is to enhance the skills and knowledge of local board of education members throughout Sussex County. SCSBA serves as a forum for the exchange of information and ideas and as a catalyst to expedite and initiate action.

The county school boards association meetings are opportunities for board members to receive professional development and up-to-date information on current education initiatives, legislation and regulations affecting public schools. The meetings enable board members to stay connected and work together to advance the achievement of all public school students in New Jersey.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting!
