State Level Advocacy

Overview

As an organization, the genesis for CASB’s advocacy activities is set via the adoption of resolutions. Each October, one delegate from each member school board participates in the annual CASB Delegate Assembly. There, resolutions are discussed, amended and either adopted or rejected by the delegates. The CASB Board of Directors sets legislative priorities for the year based on the adopted resolutions.

Throughout the legislative session, but utilizing the CASB resolutions as well as the CASB Board of Directors’ priorities, the Legislative/Resolutions Committee meets monthly to analyze and take positions on proposed legislation. In addition, the CASB Legislative Network, made up of one representative from each local board, uses regular updates from CASB to keep their local board informed and to provide feedback to CASB and legislators during the session.
