PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Phoenixville EA member John Odell is in his second successful career after 24 years with the Army.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow. To make sure they are, we need the most qualified teachers, teaching assistants, school nurses, counselors, psychologists, and social workers.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
Earlier this year, PSEA asked members to share their ideas on making our public schools safe from violence in the aftermath of the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida. As one of the Vice Chairs of the new School Safety Task Force, PSEA President Dolores McCracken shared those suggestions with members of the Task Force, including Gov. Tom Wolf and Auditor General DePasquale. (Read the PSEA report)
Based on this PSEA member feedback, observations shared during the broader regional discussions, and commentary provided through an online feedback form, the new task force has recognized in their full report released Aug. 27, “multiple themes, barriers and opportunities” for a safer Pennsylvania school environment.
More information on the update from the PA School Safety Task Force is available on the Governor’s website.
