The leading advocate for public education.
Our commitment at NSBA is, first and foremost, to ensure the health and safety of our members and staff and the students and school personnel in our charge. We advise public schools to follow federal, state and local health authorities’ guidelines on current measures to prevent and respond to the coronavirus. We will continue to update our coronavirus page with information and resources we hope you find helpful. Reopening schools safely will bring added costs for districts and schools. NSBA's Savings Center provides information about services that can help reduce districts' costs and improve operations. Visit the Savings Center via our coronavirus resource page.
