Trustees, Stay Connected
With so much going
on in and around the
Texas Legislature, it’s
almost impossible for
many school board
members to keep
up with all of the
reported in the newspapers, television news, blogs,
political magazines, tweets, etc.
The TASB School Board Advocacy Network (SBAN)
is a free service designed to keep trustees informed
and up-to-date on legislative and education news—
without overwhelming members with extraneous
information. SBAN delivers the news school board
In addition to a weekly newsletter, SBAN members
receive action alerts regarding important education
legislation working through the legislative process.
These alerts contain the information needed to effect change regarding the issues most important to
local school districts and students.
SBAN is able to influence key policymakers by
quickly mobilizing hundreds of school leaders to
communicate positions and information on critical bills and issues. SBAN alerts include detailed
background information, suggested steps for taking
action, and resources for contacting legislators and
More than 1,700 school board members representing approximately 670 districts are SBAN members.
TASB’s goal is to have every school district in Texas
represented in SBAN.
Join the hundreds of other local education leaders
who already take advantage of SBAN to advocate
on behalf of Texas’ schoolchildren and the public
education system. Sign up online at https://www.
