KASB Board, Legislative Committee work on prioritiesScott Rothschild
The KASB Board of Directors on Saturday continued working on strategic planning and the Legislative Committee began its annual task of recommending legislative priorities for the year.
The committee, which is comprised of representatives from each of KASB’s ten geographic regions and the state’s five largest school districts, will forward a final product to the KASB Delegate Assembly on Dec. 2 during the association’s annual convention.
Both the board and Legislative Committee heard reports on the recent primary election, an update on the school finance court ruling and the status of legislative interim committees.
Later, the board discussed long- and short-term goals to continue KASB’s mission of advocating for public education, providing a culture of collaboration and service and improving student achievement.
The board also heard updates from various departments, briefings on the upcoming Fall Regional meetings and convention from Nov. 30-Dec. 2 and reports on recent National School Board Association activities
