The Consortium is a nonprofit organization working with school districts across western Pennsylvania on initiatives strategically designed to strengthen and broaden school leadership, engage community and empower students. While concentrated in a seven-county area, our initiatives often spark collaborations in other Pennsylvania communities and inform policy discussions at the state level.
As a member of the Public Education Network, based in Washington, D.C., we are among 77 Local Education Funds (LEFs) bringing resources, improvements and community support to public schools. We relentlessly advocate for excellence and equity in public education for all students. Our work is inspired and driven by an unshakable belief that public education is fundamental to a democratic society and that public schools are essential to our economic vitality.
