How does working at CASB influence your ability to serve on the Douglas County School Board?

Laura from Parker asked, "How does working at CASB influence your ability to serve on the Douglas County School Board?"

A:

The Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB) is a non-profit membership organization with the mission of advancing excellence in public education through effective leadership by locally elected boards of education.

All of Colorado's 178 school districts have chosen to be members of CASB and benefit from services, information and professional development programs to support school board members as they govern their local districts. My work at CASB as the Director of Strategic Engagement and Communications is focused on providing tools and resources to school boards across the state. Just like any other school board member, I will abide by DCSD policies and applicable laws regarding conflict of interest and will take the required steps, including recusing myself from a vote, if a conflict of interest arises.  

My work at CASB will help the Douglas County School Board in its work because I will be able to share:

  • innovative practices from other Boards of Education,
  • state-level resources that can benefit the District, and
  • lessons-learned when it comes to effective board governance.
