Federal Level Advocacy
At the federal level, CASB works with a Federal Relations Network (FRN)– school board members and superintendents from across the state – to present local school district priorities to Colorado’s congressional representatives.
The annual Federal Quick Reference Guide explains CASB’s position on hot-button issues such as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, local control and unfunded mandates. The document is developed each year in January of each year by the FRN.
The National School Board Association also works to advocate on behalf of school board members. More information about that organization’s efforts is on its Advocacy and Legislation page.
Federal Relations Network Committee
The Colorado Federal Relations Network (FRN) reviews federal legislation and advocates the views of Colorado school boards to Congress. It is composed of two school board member from each of Colorado's Congressional districts. The FRN meets quarterly. If you are interested in serving on the FRN, please contact Matt Cook.
