SO, WHY DOES MY SCHOOL NEED A PTA?
There are many parent groups out there, but there is only one PTA!
With a strong history of advocacy and helping schools partner with families and communities for more than a century, PTA is the defining organization for family engagement.
PTA is at the forefront of boosting parent involvement everywhere.
Use National PTA’s NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR FAMILY-SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS and the PTA SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE PROGRAM as your personalized road map for creating collaboration among families, schools, and community members to work together to support your school improvement objectives.
PTA connects school communities both in the U.S. and across DoDEA- Europe.
It’s a place where millions of parents, teachers, leaders, and community members can network with other school leaders and experienced education advocates across the country about key education issues and ways to prepare students for college and career.
PTA fights for funding.
PTAs advocate for every child at the local, state and national level. Gain access to advocacy tools that help you speak up on behalf of the needs of every child at your school.
PTAs focus on their local schools and communities, but they're also networked globally.
A team of professional and volunteer leaders is never more than a phone call or an email away!
