NSBA Bill: Local School Board Governance and Flexibility Act, H.R. 1386

On March 21, 2013, Rep. Aaron Schock (IL) introduced the Local School Board Governance and Flexibility Act, H.R. 1386.  Today the bill boasts a total of 38 cosponsors, listed below, and the support of the American Association of School Administrators (AASA).


This bi-partisan bill,  Local School Board Governance and Flexibility Act, HR 1386, will help rein in the U.S. Department of Education’s authority in the absence of federal legislation and ensure that school boards are involved during the implementation of U.S. Department of Education guidelines. 

H.R. 1386 recognizes the vital role and responsibilities of local school board governance and local school district decision-making in designing, developing and delivering high quality educational services for our nation's schoolchildren.  This legislation also ensures that the U.S. Department of Education fulfills its role as a policy implementer rather than a policy-maker, and performs that role with proper recognition of governance.
