Can grandparents join PTA?
Anyone who cares for the education of our children can join PTA -
grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, teachers and businesses!
Does PTA spend money on fluffy pencils for teachers?
Absolutely not. All purchases made by the PTA are carefully
voted on by the board and, at general meetings, by the entire PTA
membership. Fluffy pencils do not further any child's education
never make it to the floor for a vote.
How many layers are there to PTA?
Your school's PTA board consists of an executive board and
committees, each headed by a chair to coordinate efforts. This
meet monthly with three general meetings incorporating the entire
membership - all PTA members are welcome at board meetings,
next level up is the District PTA, then State and finally
National, all with
similar board structures. Your school PTA meets regularly with
boards and has access to the state and national levels through
telephone and internet.
