The Delta Area School Boards Association (DASBA) was organized in April 1982 and became inactive in 1985. In the Fall of 1990, the DASBA reorganized. A concerted effort has been made to keep the organization informal, to involve the membership in decision-making, and to work closely with the Mississippi School Boards Association (MSBA). These efforts have been successful in maintaining active participation and interest in the organization.
DASBA serves DAAIS school board members. A concerted effort has been made to keep the organization informal and interesting, as well as, to work closely with the Mississippi School Boards Association (MSBA). These efforts have been successful in maintaining active participation and interest in the organization.
The DASBA meets four times per year—twice in the fall and twice in the spring. The dinner meetings are held on Delta State’s campus, and the meetings, meals, and programs are coordinated by the Executive Director of DAAIS.
A notice is sent to each DAAIS superintendent reminding him/her of the upcoming meeting. The superintendent then completes a reservation form indicating the number of participants that will be attending the dinner meetings from his/her school district. The superintendent may mail a check for payment of the meals back with the reservation form or may bring a check for the meals to the meeting. Checks are to be made payable to Delta State University.
Cancellation of meal reservations can be made by phone (662-846-4354) no later than two days prior to the day of the meeting. If cancellations are not made within this time frame, the school district is expected to pay for the prepared meal.
Since there are no dues, the only funds handled by the organization are payment for meals. Checks for meals are made payable to Delta State University and deposited into an account at Delta State under the name of the Delta Area School Boards Association. The accounting of funds received and dispersed is maintained by DAAIS and the Delta State Business Office. The account is audited annually as part of the Delta State audit system.
