Last year’s Advocacy Tour was a catalyst for creating the Teacher Shortage Act. Let’s see what we can do together this year.


Also, MSBA is now accepting legislative resolutions from members through Friday, September 30. Good policymaking begins when a board or a board member identifies an issue that needs to be resolved or a new idea to be considered, and submits a solution in the form of a legislative resolution.

The MSBA Delegate Assembly will debate and vote on submitted resolutions in December 2016.
