The 2017 MSBA Delegate Assembly was held Friday, December 1, and Saturday, December 2, 2017, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis — Park Place.

VOTING RESULTS: Access voting results from the 2017 Delegate Assembly.

MSBA's legislative positions are adopted through what is recognized as one of the most grass-roots approaches of any of the interests represented at the state Capitol. School board members from throughout the state are elected for a two-year term by their peers to serve as delegates.

Each December, delegates discuss and vote on various legislative resolutions submitted by school boards and individual school board members. Those resolutions that receive a majority vote, as well as positions adopted during previous years, become the basis for MSBA staff lobbying efforts on behalf of all public school board members in the state.

RESOLUTIONS: Access the 2017 resolutions.
