With regard to her interests in education, Diane Schaffer served for a dozen years on the board of school directors of the Pleasant Valley School District [PVSD] at Brodheadsville PA, as member, vice-president, president.  While on the PVSD board, she was selected to serve on the Monroe Career and Technical Institute for ten years as member, secretary, president.


Mrs. Schaffer sees her experiences as helpful in serving on the board of directors of the EPSD.  Her primary interests in serving are that the East Penn School District provide quality education, emphasizing academic excellence, and also that adequate security be provided for students and teachers in all the district schools.  She is also concerned that the district expend funds as efficiently as possible so that taxes can be lowered.
