KSBA Advocates for Kentucky Schools

Kentucky's common school system is a state and local partnership. For our students to succeed, all members of the partnership must work together. This includes local board members, state board members, legislators, the governor, and many others. 

KSBA’s goal is to create a year-round advocacy program to enhance this partnership.
