Many boards find the best way to get the WASB working on their issue is to offer a board resolution stating what you think the WASB position should be and why on any relevant topic.

Please include a clear, concise rationale to explain the intent of your resolution. Then adopt your resolution and rationale and send the WASB a copy. Thank you to the boards who have already sent us resolutions this year. Continue reading Final Reminder: Deadline to submit resolutions to WASB is Sept. 15

Deadline for submitting board resolutions is Sept. 15.

Is there an issue that is important to your board that isn’t being adequately addressed?  The WASB can help.

Many boards find the best way to get the WASB working on their issue is to offer a board resolution stating what you think WASB’s position on the issue should be and why.   It can be on any relevant topic. (See previous post.)   When your board adopts a resolution and forwards it to the WASB, it begins a discussion that ultimately guides and directs the WASB’s legislative advocacy efforts on your behalf. 

The deadline for submitting board resolutions to WASB is Sept. 15. Continue reading Deadline for submitting board resolutions is Sept. 15.

Resolutions are your board’s chance to put its imprint on the WASB

Individual school boards and school board members provide the policy guidance and direction that informs the WASB’s legislative agenda and legislative advocacy efforts on your behalf.  This begins with individual boards adopting resolutions and forwarding them to the WASB.

Each January, during the State Education Convention, a representative (delegate) of each WASB member school board in the state votes on the submitted resolutions in a gathering called the WASB Delegate Assembly.  The resolutions adopted by these school board member delegates are the official positions of the WASB and remain in force until amended or repealed. You can find all of  these resolutions collected in the 2018 WASB Resolutions Book. Continue reading Resolutions are your board’s chance to put its imprint on the WASB
