ASBO International Legislative Priorities

  • Education Funding. Targeted, robust federal funding with minimal administrative burden is an important part of a school system’s revenue.
  • School Infrastructure & Safety. Federal funding and support are critical for schools to construct, maintain, and repair facilities and ensure that students have safe and healthy places to learn and thrive.
  • Child Nutrition. Schools require a sustainable nutrition program business model with minimal administrative burden that provides affordable, nutritious meals that students will enjoy.
  • Health Care & Labor. Schools need adequate federal support to address emerging health and labor challenges affecting the education field.
