2011 Fall Conference & Delegate Assembly
Thank you for attending
this year's events!
During a preconference session, attendees learned about CASB's new Data for Governance project, an effort to provide new insight on using data to lead successful school districts.
Delegates also voted on a number of resolutions and amendments. The Delegate Assembly is members' opportunity to frame CASB's guiding principles and help set the advocacy agenda for the upcoming year. It is important that each local board review the resolution booklet, emailed every July, and then submit amendments and new resolutions to be considered at the Delegate Assembly. Participating in the resolution process and Delegate Assembly is one way CASB members influence CASB as an organization and ensure that their local voice is heard. Read the final resolutions.
Next year's conference will again tackle pressing legal issues. It will take place in Fort Collins in the fall. Other information will be posted as it becomes available.
Oct. 14 - Fall Conference
Oct. 15 - Delegate Assembly
Register now!School leaders must respond to myriad issues everyday - employee concerns, student discipline, community complaints and funding shortfalls. Often, these issues are a matter of law.
This year's CASB Fall Conference, "A Matter of Law: Legal Issues for School Leaders," will focus on your legal responsibilities as a school district leader. Whether you're a board member, candidate for the school board, superintendent or other school official, the conference line up will provide you with the legal information you need to be an effective leader.
General Sessions will focus on court cases and local control. A variety of breakout sessions will cover more of today's most pressing legal issues such as parental notification, teacher dismissal and cheating on standardized tests.

Also plan on attending the Delegate Assembly on Saturday. The adoption of new resolutions and amendments to existing resolutions will drive CASB’s advocacy efforts for the year, and years, to come.
As part of Friday’s conference, attendees will get a briefing on Gov. John Hickenlooper’s 2012 legislative priorities from Kevin Patterson, the governor’s deputy chief of staff and chief administrative officer, who is also a former CASB director and DPS board member.
Board members, candidates and superintendents are invited to attend a free workshop from 2-5 p.m., Oct. 13 at the Pueblo Marriott and Convention Center to learn how boards of education can use student achievement data to help make crucial governance decisions. The workshop will be led by CASB consultant John Hefty, former executive director of the Colorado Association of School Executives. Click the headline link above to RSVP or for more information.
