About ASBA

Who we are

ASBA represents Alberta's 61 locally-elected separate, public and francophone school boards. As a strong, supportive, province-wide association, ASBA brings the different voices of Alberta’s school boards together, and advocates on behalf of its membership.
The Alberta School Boards Association is the one association that brings together the strong, diverse voices of Alberta's autonomous, locally-elected school boards. Together, our membership represents choice in one of the best education systems in the world, designed with each unique region in mind. Not only am I proud and humbled to represent ASBA as its president, I am proud to be a member.

Why We're Here

The Alberta School Boards Association is the champion of all locally-elected public, separate and francophone school boards, big and small, from Airdrie to Zama Lake and everywhere in between. Passionate and dedicated, ASBA offers a provincial voice to school boards—a say in the future of education in our province.

Innovation

The Learning Centre

ASBA values innovation and finding new ways to ensure school board trustees get the professional development, support and resources when and where they need it. The Learning Centre (TLC) is an online learning environment, where school board members can access training and information anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Community

Indigenous Advisory Circle

As we work hard to respond to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the creation of the Indigenous Advisory Circle (IAC) has been a huge step for ASBA both in terms of supporting First Nations, Métis and Inuit students across the province and in supporting professional learning for trustees across Alberta.
