Kentucky school boards will have access to enhanced national resources this year, through a partnership of KSBA and the National School Boards Association. The long-standing NSBA National Affiliate program has engaged more than 1,600 school districts nationally, including dozens in Kentucky.
National Connection provides important partnership between districts, their state school boards associations and NSBA, working together to share best practices across the country. Participating school districts receive a package of resources designed to help school boards and district leaders stay on the leading edge of American public education.
