The Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) and Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) host a joint, multiday conference for school leaders from across the commonwealth. This annual event offers informational and inspiring content, provides learning and networking opportunities, and shares products and services offerings.
PSBA is a nonprofit statewide association of public school boards, pledged to the highest ideals of local lay leadership for the public schools of the commonwealth. The organization, founded in 1895, has a rich history as the first school boards association established in the United States. Pennsylvania’s 4,500 school directors become members by virtue of election to their local board — the board joins as a whole. Membership in PSBA is by school district or other eligible local education agency such as intermediate unit, vocational school or community college. Over the past several decades, voluntary membership by local school entities has been virtually 100%.
PASA is the membership organization of Pennsylvania’s chief school administrators, central office administrations and other administrative professionals, with over 900 members, including school district superintendents, intermediate unit executive directors and charter school chief administrative officers.
