Letter From NSBAC President

Greetings!

Hello, I’m Lydia Tedone and on behalf of the Board of Directors for the National School Boards Action Center (NSBAC), I would like to welcome you to the work of NSBAC.

Since 1997 I have had the personal pleasure of serving on the Board of Education for Simsbury Public Schools, which is located just outside of Hartford, Connecticut, working on behalf of the students of my district. I am pleased to be enhancing that work by leading NSBAC, which provides grassroots advocacy on behalf of public schools during this critical time. 

NSBAC provides national grassroots advocacy on issues highly significant to school board members and public education. NSBAC is strongly supported by a collection of state partners striving to increase resources and enhance public policies for schools throughout America. We know that investments in education today create jobs for the future by ensuring that our students will be prepared to compete in a global economy and have the skills for the jobs of tomorrow.

NSBAC has successfully helped shape key federal policies including the landmark Every Student Succeeds Act, reinforcing the organization’s commitment to students who need extra support and educational equity. NSBAC also campaigns for federal policies that enhance educational equity, expand access to educational technology, and improve student well-being.

NSBAC showcases the importance of school boards and their work to create positive learning environments for more than 50 million public school students. Addressing the enormous challenges facing our schools requires increased investments and resources as well as thoughtful leadership. Please join with NSBAC as we work hard to make America’s public schools a greater priority by giving them every opportunity to be successful in the future.  I invite and encourage you to participate in future NSBAC grassroots campaigns.  Please share your contact information on the form below. We need your voice to be heard in Congress and throughout Washington.

Sincerely,
Lydia Tedone

President, NSBAC Board of Directors
