All CABE services, programs, and other activities are designed to help school boards and their individual members provide exemplary leadership in their school districts. 

This website is no different.  Careful examination of the information we provide on the internet should help our members become even more effective in carrying out their critical responsibilities.

Our association has been serving boards since 1906.  Over the years, we have changed as our membership has changed--- always trying to provide the assistance that will most help local and regional boards of education provide quality education to the children in their communities.

Today, CABE represents over half of elected officials in the State.  This constitutes approximately 90% of boards of education.

We assist our members with services such as:

·         Advocacy
·         Board development
·         Labor relations
·         Legal advice
·         Policy
·         Publications
·         Personnel searches 
·         Insurance

We welcome members of the public and media to our website and hope that they, too, will learn more about the crucial roles and responsibilities of school boards and their members in public education.

We hope you will find the information provided helpful.  Should you have questions, comments or suggestions as to how to improve this website, please feel free to email me.
