The Association also partners with the Nebraska Council of School Attorneys to offer the following legal workshops:
Back to the Basics of School Law
- Offered in Odd Years
- Perhaps the most imposing demand society places on school board members is the requirement that they know, and adhere to, the intent and limitations of the law. Nearly everything your board does is influenced by statutory regulations. Your board has a duty to be informed about the basics of school law and when to reach out for legal services. This workshop, taught by attorneys who work with school law on a regular basis, will get you started in the right direction by presenting basic knowledge about the law, as it directly relates to your board service. Past participants have suggested this is a “must” for all people serving in a position of school leadership. The workshop focuses on the fundamental concepts of school law which locally elected school board members need to know, not “hot” topics or the latest developments.
The School Board as Judge and Jury Workshop
- Offered in Even Years
- This is a workshop dedicated to informing school boards of their roles and responsibilities surrounding their quasi-judicial powers.

- Offered in June Every Year
