Membership in recognized associations such as California School Boards Association and the Association of California School Administrators will be maintained by the schools or the district for several reasons, including:

1. The in-service education benefits to our staff and Board of Education, which come from participation in meetings, conferences, clinics, and conventions.

2. Access to the communication media of such associations, i.e., newsletters, periodicals, and advisory services.

3. Representation in actions affecting education in general and the school district in particular.

The board, in maintaining such membership, in no way abdicates its authority over the responsibility for the schools of the district as outlined in state law and board policy.

The board may budget funds for such memberships and for paying the costs of adequate participation of board, administration, and staff in the activities of such associations to achieve the purposes listed above.
