  • The Kansas Association of School Boards is one of the most trusted voices for public education. Our Advocacy staff works throughout the year to advocate for public schools at all levels of government.

    From testifying and fostering relationships in Topeka to collaborating on federal education issues, KASB is widely recognized as the go-to resource for policymakers and public education advocates.

    Our Advocacy staff works closely with the other Kansas and national educational associations to look at critical issues such as school accreditation, funding, teacher certification, and much more. During the last two sessions, our team testified on over 40 bills and hosted almost 30 events focused on ensuring you have the critical information you need to effectively lead your district and state.

    Our Advocacy team is also here to help your voice be heard. Our staff is always ready to connect you to your local legislators, aid you in drafting testimony, and support you in fighting for public education in Kansas. Our Advocacy in Action cohort equips people with the knowledge and skills necessary to become an effective and heard voice for public education for our most eager advocates.

  • 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, all supported by a legal team with decades of experience in public education law and policy.

    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:

    • An 'Attorney on Call' during board meetings
    • Access to legal counsel through phone calls, email, and Zoom meetings
    • Guidance on how to interpret laws and rulings that specifically impact schools
    • Specialized workshops ranging from Title IX training to Negotiations workshops

    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.
