Members-Only Area of Website

To access information exclusive to CASB members, you'll need your school district's password and username. Each individual school district has its own shared username and password. Once CASB obtains your contact information via your board secretaries (usually by January), we will be sending you a personal card with your username and password information.
In the meantime, if you'd like to access the Members-Only area of the website, you can obtain your password/username information by contacting Renee Combs at 303-832-1000, 800-530-8430. Or, one of your fellow board members or the superintendents' secretary can get it for you.
