As the Washington, D.C. office for our state associations, NSBA is committed to ensuring the voice and perspective of school boards are heard and recognized by members of Congress and the Biden administration. In pursuit of excellence and equity in public education, we advocate for federal policies that strengthen public schools and local governance. We also work to ensure that support for public education is a top priority for the nation.

Our policy road map, which is set by our Delegate Assembly and captured in our 2019-2020 Advocacy Agenda, covers a range of issues including student and school safety, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, school infrastructure and financing, nutrition, and career and technical education (CTE).

As a matter of priority, NSBA’s comprehensive advocacy and policy priorities reinforce an equity statement adopted by the association and reflected in the following video.
