As a public school board member, you have a role as an advocate for your schools, students and community.

Matt shares tips and tools that will help you gain strength as an advocate and build relationships that last and work for your school district.


CASB Conversations

Preparing Your District Budget with Two Years in Mind   —

Budget season is gearing up. Join us for a webinar to talk about your role in the budget process, key areas you should be following that drive decision-making, and other critical pieces to the budget puzzle. One of those pieces includes federal pandemic dollars, Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER), and how those one-time investments play into budget setting. This session will provide new information on how districts across Colorado have spent and are spending their ESSER funds, key takeaways to share with your administration and public, and strategies to help you communicate the impact your investments have had on your students.
