•  2017 Winter Legislative Conference banner



    Thank you to everyone who attended CASB’s 2017 Winter Legislative Conference. CASB members heard from an expert on school finance across the country, Michael Griffith of Education Commission of the States; one of Colorado’s leading economists, Natalie Mullis; and a panel that explained the basics of a constitutional convention and what challenges Colorado might face in getting legislators and voters to approve one. School board members also got an update on the federal picture from an analyst from the National School Boards Association. Below you will find links to presentations and tools that will help you be the most informed and effective advocate possible.
