Alexandria, Va. (March 28, 2017) — The National School Boards Association’s (NSBA’s) Council of School Attorneys (COSA), the national network of attorneys representing K-12 public school districts, elected new leaders and directors at its recent annual meeting in Denver, Colorado. COSA supports school attorneys and provides leadership in legal advocacy for public schools; its 22-member Board of Directors oversees its continuing legal education programming and working groups for its more than 3,000 members across the United States and Canada.

Student innovation challenge results

NSBA’s Annual Conference is always teeming with activity and energy, but for the last three years, a special burst of youthful exuberance has come courtesy of the DLR Group Student Innovation Challenge. 

The lively and demanding applied learning competition was created to showcase how students can engage in active learning and collaborative teamwork while addressing real-world problems creatively, said Pam Loeffelman, an education planning and design expert with DLR Group, an integrated design firm.
