What is PTA?

PTA stands for: Founded in 1897, PTA believes that the education of children is a shared responsibility of the home and the school.

PTA works to benefit children and to support parents.

Your membership dues ensure your right to vote at PTA meetings, defray the costs of materials you receive, and support your child's education.

If you decide not to pay dues, you may still attend meetings, but you may not vote.

When you join a local PTA, you also become a member of your county PTA, your state PTA, and the National PTA - all working together to ensure that every child has an opportunity to learn and be successful in school and in life.
