Governmental Relations

From Frankfort to Washington, D.C., laws and regulations drive much of the direction of public schools. The Governmental Relations staff provide advocacy with legislators and policy makers on education, budget, tax policy and employment issues distinguished by an emphasis on the needs of students.

Legislative Contact Nomination Information

Local legislative contacts will serve as the primary contact for organizing and managing local grassroots activities. These activities include organizing legislative forums, hosting in-district meetings with legislators and sharing information with other school leaders in your community.

It is important that legislative contacts have the ability to utilize electronic communications. KSBA’s goal is to create a year-round legislative program to improve our communications with state and federalelected officials.
