Your National Executive-Level Resource

National Connection is the leading national executive information and networking service for school board leaders and senior school district staff. Education is a local activity, but is shaped by national trends. With content that is targeted, relevant, and easy to access, board members can become thought leaders who place their local issues in a national context.


National Connection Daily

National Connection Daily is your morning executive news briefing, providing both national and local news from across the U.S. With a quick scan of the headlines each morning, school board leaders can be current on the latest in education news, and stay ahead of the forces impacting education.
