From the Executive Director
On behalf of our President Ellen Wheeler from the Mountain View-Whisman School District and the Officers, welcome to the website of the Santa Clara County School Boards Association (SCCSBA).
Founded in 1975, Santa Clara County School Boards Association offers board development services, communication, and other activities to promote public education for the thirty-one elementary, high school, and unified school district Boards of Trustees in Santa Clara County and the Santa Clara County Board of Education. In concert with the California School Boards Association (CSBA), SCCSBA seeks to build an effective foundation for the education of all children in our diverse communities, by providing education advocacy, professional governance, and policy development.
The Association hosts monthly Executive Board meetings, usually on the fourth Wednesday evening, from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Santa Clara County Office of Education. We also host an informal lunch on the "First or Second Friday" of the month, at a centrally located restaurant – both events are open to all members and new members are especially welcome.
During the school year, we provide a regular monthly newsletter to board members and Superintendents throughout the county, as well as updates to our website that include Agendas and Minutes from our Executive Board Meetings and to our Facebook page: SCCSBA. Please consider joining our Facebook page!
One of the most active County Associations affiliated with CSBA, SCCSBA sponsors a number of well-attended events during the school year. We begin with our Annual Fall General Membership Dinner Meeting in October. We also sponsor a Hospitality Suite during CSBA’s Annual Education Conference in December.
We continue our dynamic year in the spring with our Legislative Brunch with all of our locally elected State Legislators. At our Annual Hoffmann Awards General Membership Dinner Meeting, we recognize outstanding programs in our county with the Glenn Hoffmann Awards. Our year finishes with the Annual Reorganization Meeting and Installation of Officers. Please refer to the Annual Calendar on this website for more details.
In the past, we have co-sponsored a local series of board development workshops, the CSBA Masters in Governance program, with the Santa Clara County Office of Education. This program is now offered on a statewide level. See the CSBA website: www.csba.org for more information about the Masters in Governance program.
Looking forward to elections in November every two (even) years, we hold Board candidate workshops in early June of those years to continue stimulating interest in school board service.
If you have any questions about the Association or its programs and services, please contact Bonnie Mace (Executive Director) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell phone at (408) 406-4974, and I will return your call as soon as possible. Thank you for your membership in our Association!
