The Pennsylvania School Boards Association is a not-for-proft association created in 1895, and a member of the National School Boards Association. The association educates the general public and school boards in Pennsylvania about public school governance and provides useful information on school boards and school spending across the Commonwealth. A collection of tables called "School Facts and Figures" contains short summaries of statistics on school enrollments, test scores, and expenditures as of 2007.[1]

Other reports and databases at this site include the following:

  • An extensive collection of materials on school finance[2]
  • Average salaries for school administrators, grouped by district enrollment[3]
  • Data on strikes and fact-finding[4]
  • The PSBA legislative platform[5]

Nearly every school district in the state is a member of the association.[7]
