The KASB Legal Team combines years of experience to serve school districts across the state. Our Legal Assistance Fund is designed to support boards of education facing an increasing need for legal services. LAF is one of the few programs in the nation that provides members legal assistance, services, reports on recent legal development to public school boards, and custom-built workshops and training for education leaders.
Membership in the fund provides participating boards of education access to legal counsel, legal research, important court decisions, our interpretation of laws affecting schools, written memos on specific legal questions asked by participating boards, and written legal opinions.
The goal of LAF is to supplement and enhance, but not replace, the legal services available to boards of education. This makes LAF a great option for organizations of all sizes. Your membership in LAF allows our team of attorneys to offer critical services to you and other districts that include:
Any member governing board of KASB is eligible to participate in LAF upon signing the Adoption Agreement and LAF Contract and upon payment of the initial consultant service fee.
