The NCCSA monitors state and federal legislative activity continually paying special attention to the following: pending legislation, actions of governmental agencies, current federal and state laws pertaining to religious institutions, and other matters of concern to Christian schools. A rapid-alert system is used to notify administrators and pastors currently in our contact database of any important information within minutes. Whenever the need arises, NCCSA member schools can call the AACS staff attorney for immediate legal assistance and opinions pertaining to the needs and interests of Christian schools. From time to time, various legal reports are published to give instruction and guidelines. In addition, the state office can assist member schools in securing competent legal counsel when needed.
