ASBSD invites school board members and administrators from member districts to our 2019 Legislative Day on Tuesday, February 19.
ASBSD Legislative Day is a day of advocacy and action in support of public education and school board members will be honored for their service to public education as part of South Dakota School Board Recognition Week.
School board members and administrators are invited to Pierre to learn about the latest status of bills impacting K-12 schools and to visit the Capitol to make the collective K-12 education voice heard. Board members attending will earn 30 ALL points for their board!
