Founded in 1954, Nova Scotia School Boards Association (NSSBA) is the provincial voice for school boards across the province. NSSBA engages with its members and partners to raise awareness of public education in our province while helping students achieve their potential.

All of the services offered by NSSBA are designed to enhance the effectiveness of its eight member school boards.
