Hello School Board Members and Superintendents,

A warm welcome to each of you who are newly elected trustees!  New faces bring new perspectives and energy to your school boards and to our county as a whole. CCCSBA was formed with the purpose of creating opportunities for school board members across Contra Costa county to share, learn, and advocate together.  We hope to see you at our upcoming meetings, but in the meantime don't hesitate to reach out. We have many experienced board members who are happy to help point you to available resources and information.  We also highly recommend the CSBA MIG (Masters in Governance) course. Thank you for stepping up to serve your school community to make quality public education accessible to all students.
