PSCAN Meeting

PSCAN was developed in the fall of 2019 through joint conversations between our association and several access and success programs across the Commonwealth, including the Pennsylvania Department of Education.  We discovered that we were having a lot of the same conversations, doing a lot of the same work, and researching the same information thus duplicating efforts.  We decided to join together for regular meetings and discussion. 

Speaker:  Matthew Splain, President of the PA Association for Rural and Small Schools 

Mr. Splain received his bachelor's degree in Mathematics from St. Bonaventure University in 1997 and began his teaching career in the Coudersport School District. He finished his master's coursework in curriculum and instruction at Gannon University and qualified for his principal's certification in 2001. In March 2005, Mr. Splain became the high school principal at Otto-Eldred where he served for six years. During that time, Mr. Splain completed additional coursework at St. Bonaventure University and received his superintendent’s letter in 2010. He became the superintendent of schools for the Otto-Eldred School District in April 2011.

Mr. Splain currently serves as the president of the executive board of the Pennsylvania Association of Rural and Small Schools (PARSS), is on the advisory board of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, he is a member of the board at UPMC Cole, and also serves on the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrator Legislative Committee.  In the past, he served on the board of McKean County CASA and the PIAA District IX Committee.  He also enjoys volunteering his time as a youth sports coach for numerous local organizations and serves on the Parish Finance Council for St. Raphael’s Church in Eldred.

Mr. Splain currently lives in Duke Center with his wife, Melanie, and their four sons, Maxton, Manning, Macaibe, and Maddon.
