Optional Services for Districts
Employee Health/Wellness Program
TASA partners with Wondr Health to support school employee wellness in Texas. School districts receive special pricing when they add Wondr Health to their benefits plans — a move that not only helps valued employees lead healthier, happier lives and better serve students, but also potentially reduces health care costs, which have a real impact on districts’ financial bottom line and ability to allocate more resources into district classrooms.

State-of-the-art analytics solutions help district leaders tap into their data to make more informed decisions for the benefit of their students and communities.

Texas Association of School Board Services
TASA proudly endorses the following four TASB-related entities and encourages TASA members to consider using these programs in their districts.
The Lone Star Investment Pool can help school districts find the right blend of principal protection, liquidity, diversification, and returns. Distributed by First Public, a subsidiary of TASB, Lone Star focuses on preserving the safety of principal while positioning for the highest possible rate of return.
The TASB Energy Cooperative offers a fixed-rate fuel program that helps districts budget with certainty and meet state procurement laws, including an online request for quote (RFQ) feature, which allows members to request spot pricing that be finalized in a matter of days instead of a lengthy bid/proposal process.
The TASB Risk Management Fund is a financially strong self-insured risk pool that has helped Texas school districts protect their resources since 1974. The Fund’s comprehensive risk solutions include auto, school liability, property, privacy and information security, workers’ compensation, and unemployment compensation coverage.
Subscription Services for Districts
TASA partners with lead4ward to provide accountability support to districts and ESCs through accountabilityconnect, a subscription-based district support service with a focus on classroom instruction and student learning that helps campus and district leaders make sense of the complexities surrounding assessment and accountability systems so they can more effectively lead and support sound instructional practices.
Legislative & Public Policy Services
TASA’s Governmental Relations team helps us maintain the visibility and respect needed to effectively advocate for public schools. They work directly with legislators and other state leaders as well as alongside other education associations to both advance our priorities and defend against legislation that would negatively impact public schools and students. These efforts require significant time, energy, and resources — beyond that funded by regular membership dues. Your district’s subscription to TASA’s Legislative and Public Policy Services allows TASA to dedicate the resources needed to monitor and influence legislative and public policy matters on behalf of your district.
School Transformation Network
A great first step to creating learning environments that prepare future-ready students is joining TASA’s School Transformation Network. When your district joins STN, TASA is also able provide more professional learning opportunities and other resources that support future-ready school leaders and further Mission: School Transformation.
