We Advocate for Quality Education

As a school business leader, you advocate for your students every day to ensure they have a quality education and ample resources to maximize their potential.

As your advocate, and an advocate of the school business profession, ASBO International is here to help you understand and engage with the federal policy issues impacting your school district to ensure your voice is heard.

ASBO International Legislative Priorities

  • K–12 Education Funding. Adequate federal funding with minimal administrative burden is critical for schools to provide quality education services.
  • School Infrastructure & Safety. Direct investment and other federal financial supports are critical for schools to construct, maintain, and repair facilities, and to provide students with safe and healthy places to learn.
  • Child Nutrition. Schools need sustainable nutrition business models to feed students affordable, nutritious, and delicious meals.
  • Health Care and Labor. Federal support, flexibility, and funding are necessary for states and school districts to implement federal healthcare and labor regulations.
