​Private and Nonpublic School Enrollment

School personnel who have their security access from last year will be able to access PNPE with their User ID and Password through the MyPDESuite.​

School personnel who are new users must register a username, login to MyPDESuite and be given access to PNPE by the PNPE – Local Administrator or Local Security Administrator for their institution. Review How To Gain Access to PNPE (PDF).

PDE has been directed by the PA Office of Administration and PA Auditor General to implement updated security policies for all educational institutions that use PDE online systems. As a result, all local educational institutions must review and confirm their PDE system users each year.   

The PNPE – Local Administrator or Local Security Administrator for your institution should review your PNPE users annually and remove any users who no longer require access. Review How To Review PNPE Users (PDF).
