PASPA has new benefits!
The PA Association of School Personnel Administrators and the PA Principals Association are proud to announce that a new partnership has been formed to benefit the members of both associations. Beginning in this membership year, our organizations will be sharing professional development opportunities and legislative, informational emails with each organization. It is our hope to create a grassroots effort to advocate for policies and practices that are of common interest and concern to our memberships.
Members of PASPA are invited to the PA Principals Association’s regional meetings for legislative updates free of charge, which are hosted across the state and designed to bring educational leaders together to learn about current issues and legislation. These meetings are also an opportunity to network with existing and new colleagues. Members of the PA Principals Association are able to participate in web-based presentations offered by PASPA at the member rate.
Updates on PA Principals Association program opportunities can be found in the Member Bonus section.

School districts are paying to burnish their brands to counter images and compete with charters
The Norristown Area School District hasn’t been in the news much in the last few years, and what little coverage it did get tended to focus on fights with the state over lack of funding, or how it coped with high poverty rates in the Montgomery County river town that gives it its name.
So when Christopher Dormer took over last August as superintendent, one of his first priorities was a sweeping district-wide effort to rebuild the brand of the Norristown district’s schools.
