PASA Leadership Forum

March 13, 2020

From Dr. Mark DiRocco, PASA Executive Director

It is with regret that PASA announces we are cancelling the upcoming PASA Leadership Forum.

The Coronavirus has escalated dramatically in the past few days causing many closures and recommendations to avoid large gatherings.  Just yesterday, Governor Wolf closed all school districts in Montgomery County.  Ohio and Maryland closed all school districts in their respective states.  Many colleges and universities have closed including Penn State, which made our decision to cancel the conference an obvious choice for both PASA and Penn State.  Neither party wanted to risk the health and safety of any conference participant or hotel staff member.  

Although we had hoped to deliver the conference programming to you virtually, we have determined that it will not be possible to do so.   Many of our presenters are school leaders who must devote their time and energy to managing the virus crisis.  We regret not being able to provide this programming to you but hope to create some webinars involving the conference topics in the future.  

All registrants will receive a full registration refund.  Please allow a few weeks for PASA to send you a refund check.  Additionally, any registrant who booked a hotel room at the Nittany Lion Inn will receive an email from the hotel with directions on how to cancel your reservation.  Please be sure to cancel your reservation within 24 hours of your scheduled arrival date to avoid any payment.  If you booked a room at a hotel other than the Nittany Lion Inn, please contact the hotel to cancel your reservation.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

You have my best wishes in navigating the challenges of the Coronavirus in your district.  Please reach out to us if we can be of assistance to you in this matter.
