Joining BuyBoard Is Free and Easy!

The Texas Cooperative is open to all local governments, and other political subdivisions in the state that are authorized to be a party to an interlocal cooperation agreement under the Interlocal Cooperation Act. The following entities must be members of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) to participate:

  • Texas school districts including open enrollment and college/university charter schools
  • Educational cooperatives
  • Community colleges
  • Central appraisal districts

Membership is free and as easy as completing one of the appropriate membership agreements:

  • Local governmental entities (including open enrollment and college/university charter schools) or other political subdivisions located in Texas must complete the Interlocal Agreement (pdf).

While not eligible for Cooperative membership, TASB offers nonprofit, tax-exempt entities use of the BuyBoard through a nonprofit subscriber agreement.

If you are unsure about which agreement to sign, call us at 800-695-2919.

Email your executed agreement to membership@buyboard.com.

As soon as you join, you can begin using the BuyBoard—and start saving time and money!
