Welcome Message From the President

Welcome to the Palm Beach County School District Staff Association’s website! We are glad you are here.


As the current president, I am proud to be leading such a great group of professionals that work in a variety of positions across the District. We are a collegial consortium that is united in our support for students, staff, and District. We look forward to your membership and participation as we move forward into 2022.


We continue to represent our association by supporting our District’s Strategic Plan in the areas of Talent Development and High Performance Culture. We meet with District Leadership often on behalf of our members and bring the joys and concerns of staff forward to better relationships between students, school centers, and support staff. Together, we make a difference and our diverse and collective experiences enrich our system. Staff development, mentoring, work environment, equity, compensation, benefits, and pathways for advancement are topics we routinely weigh in on.


Finally, we will continue our scholarship program for high school seniors and have awarded $20,000 over the last 4 years. This is most exciting as we invest in our students through our work in K-12 and beyond. Our students are our future and we are excited to pay it forward!


This year is presenting challenges for all of us, but we are here to support you. I hope you will take that first step in joining us in moving our District forward.


PJ D’Aoust
