Council members attend winter meetings

San Benito CISD Board President Michael A. Vargas attended the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Winter Board Meetings held earlier this month. Shown with Vargas are other Legislative Advisory Council members, from left, Tracy Fisher (Coppell ISD), Cynthia Najera (Socorro ISD), and Becky St. John (Grapevine-Colleyville ISD).

The TASB Legislative Advisory Council is responsible for merging the regional priorities identified by school board members around the state into a statewide list of legislative priorities. The council’s recommendations are submitted for adoption to TASB’s Delegate Assembly at the Association’s annual convention in the fall.
