Santa Barbara County School Boards Association (SBCSBA)


The Santa Barbara County School Boards Association’s purpose is to provide educational opportunities and a forum for its membership. All public school districts in Santa Barbara County are eligible for membership in the Association. The Association has an Executive Committee made up of officers and delegates-at-large, which meets once a month during the school year. The Association holds an annual general membership meeting, typically in the spring in the form of a dinner.
The Association may also participate in conferences and seminars, legislative advocacy, and coordination of local and state educational resources, to more effectively address the needs of public education.

For more information about the SBCSBA, contact Arlene Sherchan, Administrative Assistant, at | (805) 964-4710, ext. 5285.
