In 2018, PSBA adopted an Equity Statement proclaiming a call for equity in the provision of education for Pennsylvania's students. PSBA's Equity Statement defines equity as, “…the just and fair distribution of resources based upon each individual student's needs. Equitable resources included funding, programs, policies, initiatives and supports that target each student's unique background and school context to guarantee that all students have equal access to a high-quality education.”

PSBA will continue the path forward by addressing specific equity issues in the form of white papers, best practice case studies, webcasts and webinars, podcasts, educational training and workshops, resource guides, an equity toolkit, and policy.
