We Share Your Belief in California’s Public Schools

Ball/Frost Group has spent decades guiding board members, superintendents and their leadership teams, associations, nonprofits, and philanthropic organizations through the unfamiliar territory that is California’s legislative and administrative process to make a difference for the state’s schools and education community. We believe in the promise of public education, which is why we are passionate about making a difference for students. If you want an experienced, trusted, inclusive and tenacious advocate in your corner, we’re your team.

As senior director of a large state-wide association, I need to gauge how people feel about any given issue. I often turn to Ball/Frost to get a quick pulse, a sense of how their clients feel, to help me better support my members. This confidence is testament to the strong relationships Ball/Frost has with their clients, and speaks to decades of pragmatism, listening, and understanding.

It’s consistently clear to the legislature and our colleagues in the Capitol, that Andrea, Jeff and Laura are believers in why we do this work — they are committed to helping the students. And to their clients across the state doing important work on the ground, Ball/Frost Group serves as the ultimate representative and voice in Sacramento.
