PSBA plays a critical role in drafting, analyzing and helping legislation pass that will positively affect public education, as well as fighting those bills that could have negative consequences. The association has a daily presence in Harrisburg representing the views of school directors with legislators and other policymakers.
Influencing legislation and shaping the public debate on key education issues also depends upon the grassroots involvement of PSBA’s members. The association encourages school directors to be effective advocates by developing relationships with legislators and keeping important issues at the forefront throughout the year.
