KSBA has introduced new board team resources for managing conversations on DEI efforts within our schools. Districts have come under increased scrutiny on topics related to critical race theory (CRT) and concerns are being raised at board meetings. CRT has been a frequent subject of incomplete and incorrect public discussion and media coverage, so it is important that boards have a shared understanding of key terms that are garnering so much attention. School boards should be equipped to address the controversy without becoming a part of it.
KSBA also offers training via its Equity Cadre in the form of conference sessions, in-district trainings and webinars. For more information on equity training opportunities, contact Laura Cole, KSBA Director of Board Team Development, at (800) 372-2962 or via email
