The Pennsylvania School Boards Association 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 Pennsylvania School Boards Association, founded in 1895, has a rich history as the first school boards association established in the United States. Not only do we represent the 4,500 school directors across the state in 501 school districts, we also are a valuable resource for intermediate units, career and technical schools, school solicitors, superintendents and other school administrators, legislators and governmental agencies.
PSBA's Mission and Strategic Plan
The mission of the Pennsylvania School Boards Association is to promote excellence in school board governance through leadership, service and advocacy for public education.
The PSBA Governing Board is the policy-making body for the state's school districts, and is charged with directing the general affairs of the association between annual business meetings. The board also oversees the work of various appointed committees. Officers of the board are elected by the association's general membership at the annual state conference through a specified balloting procedure.
Electing PSBA Officers
