 Region 11 - Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR)

The city of Philadelphia, largely due to its size and nature, has been designated its own region (11). Pennsylvania is divided into 13 geographic regions composed of several cities and territories. Although Philadelphia enjoys a degree of autonomy, its organizational structure and activities remain parallel to the state organization. For example, PPSREA and PASR work closely when it comes to lobbying and legislation so retirees are encouraged to become a part of both organizations.

PPSREA (Philadelphia Public School Retired Employees Association) is Region 11 of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR).  We are actively engaged in providing helpful services and activities to our members.  PPSREA is composed of retirees from every level of employment in the School District of Philadelphia.
