Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools

Quality Education for all Pennsylvania’s Children

We are the Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools (PARSS). In addition to providing valuable services to our members, we are a highly effective organization whose voice reaches across economic and geographic boundaries. We have disquieted the consciences of legislators, state administrators, and the courts on the issue of educational instructional and fiscal equity. Our ultimate goal is victory for the benefit of students in all of the Commonwealth’s schools, but especially those in our poor, small, and rural schools.

For nearly 35 years, we have pursued resolution of these issues with vigor—and we will not stop.
