PA Principals Association Professional Development Opportunities

Professional staff development is another area where PA Principals Association provides you with invaluable services. Each year, PA Principals Association holds its annual state conference where the latest leadership and curricular issues are highlighted. This is a great opportunity to hear from leaders in the field, talk with vendors and establish peer networks. PA Principals Association has been approved by PDE to provide Act 45 PIL programs in conjunction with its state conference. We’ve offered PIL hours at our state confrence since 2008. We will continue offering them at future conferences.

In July 2016, we held our the first-ever PA Educational Leadership Summit with the PA Association of School Administrators, the PA Association of Middle Level Educators and the PA Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, which members could attend and earn their Act 45 PIL hours.
