Together, we'll lay the groundwork for:

  • Relief from escalating pension costs
  • Enhanced professional development for board and staff
  • Additional counseling and intervention services
  • Increased afterschool enrichment
  • Better programs for English Language Learners
  • Higher investment in Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts & Math (S.T.E.A.M.)
  • Greater access to technology and learning materials                        

We must invest in education to prepare our students for the demands of the 21st century economy and the responsibilities of a democratic society. CSBA’s new approach prepares us to:

  • Establish a robust grassroots system to mobilize members and maximize our political capital.
  • Drive the education policy agenda to ensure high quality education for every student by addressing the adequacy and opportunity gaps.
  • Provide more in-depth advocacy, policy, community engagement and governance training for individual board members.
  • Guarantee more frequent contact with CSBA staff and localized updates on the policy, legal and political developments of specific interest to your community.
  • Build powerful coalitions regionally and statewide.

Learn how you can play a part in the work and make an even bigger difference for your students!
