Legal Rights’ Booklet

The Principalship and Your Legal Rights and Responsibilities Booklet is Now Available Online!

Below is a link to PA Principals Association’s handbook (reprinted in 2012), “The Principalship and Your Legal Rights and Responsibilities.” It is mailed to new members with their welcome packet, but this is the first time that it is being made available online to all members.

This handbook is designed to provide accurate and authoritative information in regard to the subject matter covered. It is printed with the understanding that the association is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting or other professional services through the publication. If legal or other professional services are required, PA Principals Association members should contact the PA Principals Association office or the services of other competent professionals.
