Legal Support / Professional Advice

legal_supportPA Principals Association offers legal advice to its members. Often school administrators face situations in which they are uncertain how to proceed. When in doubt, call PA Principals Association. We do not claim to have all of the answers, but we can serve as a sounding board, offer advice and help you network to receive the answers you seek. It is always best to be proactive, and such assistance is one of our functions.

Legal support is also an area where we can be of assistance. Each member receives $1,000,000 of liability coverage and up to $10,000 of support in job-threatening situations. The latter accumulates at $1,000 per year for each uninterrupted year that you are a member. This coverage is invaluable. It is reassuring to know that you have advice, consultation and, if necessary, an attorney to support you.
