Federal Level Advocacy

Overview

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 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), federal funding for education, and student data privacy. The document is developed 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 the NSBA's efforts is located 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 members from each of Colorado's Congressional districts. The FRN meets quarterly. If you are interested in serving on the FRN, please contact Matt Cook.
