On Friday, August 7, The PIAA Board of Directors met to review Governor Wolf’s statement strongly recommending no interscholastic and recreational sports until January 1. The PIAA board believes that the governor’s strong recommendation to delay sports to January 1, 2021, has a potential negative impact on the students’ physical, social, emotional and mental health.
PSBA recognizes that the COVID pandemic has created many challenges within education to which there are no easy answers. We continue to advocate for consistent, clear guidance from state officials and the continued authority of locally elected school boards to make decisions that are in the best interests of their students and their local community. We will continue to monitor the guidance and opinions issued by the PA Departments of Health and Education so that school districts are in compliance with their decisions.
