A Board of Directors, composed of one school board member from each public school district in Armstrong and Indiana Counties, serves as a governing body for ARIN. The ARIN Board of Directors meets at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at the ARIN Central Office. An open conference session precedes each meeting, and the Board reorganizes in June. Exceptions: The July and December meetings may be cancelled. An open conference session precedes each meeting. The April meeting will be held in conjunction with the Annual Convention of School Directors at the Purchase Line School District.

ARIN operates on a $24.1 million budget. Funding is from various local, state and federal sources. In most cases, the budgets are built on allocations or competitive grants received from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and elsewhere. ARIN's cooperative-based programs and consortia give districts and communities access to quality alternatives that might otherwise be too costly for a single district.
We will provide innovative educational programs, training and support services through partnerships and visionary leadership in Armstrong and Indiana Counties.
