Legislative Services

As a school board member, understanding Alaska’s legislative process is your key to creating a better educational system for our kids.

AASB encourages school board members to be instrumental in the legislative process through these important services.


Our Executive Director coordinates AASB’s grassroots lobbying effort. AASB’s Legislative Network means your school board representatives are prepared to lobby during each legislative session.
AASB is your member network to promote pro-education legislation and to protect the principle of local control of public education.

Legislative Handbook
Each year Legislative Network members receive AASB’s Legislative Handbook for School Board Members.
Your handbook includes:

• Current addresses for legislators
• Current priority education issues
• Basics of Lobbying
• Useful tips on how to communicate effectively with legislators 

Legislative Fly-In
Two Fly-Ins each legislative session offer board members the opportunity to speak with a unified voice as they meet face to face with legislators and governmental officials. Your voice is heard as you collaborate with AASB through testimony at committee hearings. Take advantage of a first-hand opportunity to convey your board’s perspective on critical issues affecting district and statewide issues.
