The First Regular Session of the Seventy-third General Assembly will convene on January 13, 2021.

Know your legislator

School board members advocate for local schools by working with their legislators and it is important that members take time to know their legislators and gain the ability to share the challenges and the successes their teachers and students face on a daily basis. Invite legislators to visit local schools to see first-hand how state policies affect students, teachers, and administrators. As fellow elected officials, board members bring expertise and knowledge about education in their community to their legislators.

CASB has Key Legislators documents for every school district that highlight the policymakers who represent local constituents. This directory houses all the documents.

Stay current on bills

CASB maintains an interactive graphic that provides an additional tool for school board members to keep current on bills, their status, sponsor information, and a direct link to the Colorado General Assembly page to have the most up-to-date information available. The graphic is based on the Bill Tracker document that is only available to CASB members through login, which is another tool for monitoring bills.

CASB also keeps members informed of what’s happening at the Capitol through the School Board Advocate, our advocacy newsletter that is published twice a month during the legislative session and periodically throughout the year when the legislature is not in session.
