LeaderBoard Advertising

LeaderBoard is MASB’s flagship print publication that is distributed to more than 5,000 school board members, superintendents, businesses, legislators and other education stakeholders three times a year (January, May and September).

It is the only Michigan-specific print publication for school board members with articles that take a comprehensive and in-depth look at stories that matter most to our audience.
