Our Days at the Capitol events run February through April and give school board members—from rural districts tucked away in the mountains and plains, to large districts neighboring the state capitol—a chance to experience the legislative process firsthand and help strengthen the voice of school boards.
Each Wednesday throughout the legislative session, we start at 9 a.m. with breakfast at CASB and a briefing with our advocacy team, followed by a visit to the state capitol. Attendees observe the House and Senate from the floor and watch legislators in action at the education committee meetings.
|“We had a fantastic day yesterday! THANK YOU for all of your efforts to help our students have a hands-on learning experience. There were many many details, from the wonderful lunch to the scheduled meetings, that made this day a success! Our students and teachers will take this experience with them and build upon it in so many ways.”
Spending a day at the capitol also is a great opportunity to build relationships with legislators—meeting them face-to-face, inviting them to lunch or a school board meeting, or talking to them about YOUR district’s successes, needs or concerns.
We invite and encourage you and anyone from your district to join us whenever and however many times you can. We need YOU – our members – to strengthen the voice of school boards by helping state lawmakers understand our legislative priorities and concerns.
