Society is trying to answer many complicated questions and boards of education are at the forefront of navigating the various perspectives held by the public. CSBA’s Legal Department works to provide board members with information and resources that help them navigate those perspectives in a more accessible and efficient manner. CSBA’s attorneys keep members informed by staying up to date on changes in the law and decisions in state and federal courts and reviewing events with a focus on historical context to understand why changes are occurring and what may come in the future.
The Legal team works to ensure the diverse perspectives of all members throughout the state are represented in informational materials. When considering the potential involvement of the Education Legal Alliance (ELA), the significance of the issue is evaluated, ensuring it is of statewide concern and the outcome will benefit all CSBA members.
