Professional Registration

The Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials has developed this voluntary program of professional registration and continuing education in order to provide a recognized standard of competence for school business administrators, officials and specialists eligible for PASBO active and life memberships.
The objectives of this program are:
  1. to raise the professional standards of those school administrators who have responsibilities for system-wide non-instructional services and programs;
  2. to improve school business management practices by encouraging school business officials to develop and implement a continuing program of personal professional development;
  3. to identify those persons with system-wide administrative and supervisory responsibilities in school business functions who have demonstrated competence and have fulfilled prescribed standards of performance and conduct; and
  4. to award special recognition to school business officials who meet the initial and renewal criteria for professional registration.
Upon application, all members who meet the standards and qualifications established by the PASBO Board of Directors shall be registered for a four-year period. To renew the designated registration for subsequent four-year periods, the recipient must meet the continuing eligibility requirements. Click here for the Professional Registration Guide.

Frequently Asked Questions

CEU History is Back!
PASBO has been able to work with our software vendor to again track online CEU history. 

Here are a few tips to help you gather your CEU history:
  • You can check your recent PASBO workshop activity by logging onto the PASBO website. Go to your profile page and select “My Certifications.”
  • Beginning July 2017, all workshop activity has been tracked by name of workshop and number of CEUs. Prior to this year, workshops were tracked by date and number of CEUs only.  In addition to workshops, we are also tracking committee membership.
  • The PASBO Annual Conference and regional chapter officers will not be listed here, however should appear by the end of the calendar year.  We recommend that you continue to track all of your other activities such as regional chapter attendance and PASBO Report articles.
  • If a workshop or other professional development history is not showing in these records, you may still submit for CEU by including it on your Professional Registration CEU Schedule.
