Pennsylvania School Study Council logo

Founded in 1947, the Pennsylvania School Study Council (PSSC) is a partnership between Penn State and member school districts, intermediate units, and career and technology centers. PSSC is dedicated to improving public education in Pennsylvania by providing up-to-date research information, professional development activities, and technical assistance that will enable its members to provide top-quality educational services to students. We believe that:

  • PSSC's primary function is to provide services responding to identified member needs.

  • PSSC services should be unique and have a competitive advantage.

  • PSSC services should be easily attainable, timely, effective, and helpful.

  • PSSC must respond to changing circumstances with creativity and innovation.

  • PSSC must use an entrepreneurial approach to providing services to its constituency.

  • Professional integrity and responsible management of resources are essential.

  • Personal contact is an essential component of services offered and delivered.

  • Integrity and collegiality must characterize relationships between PSSC, member LEA's, and the University.

PSSC offers a wide range of benefits for members during the school year
