PA/PTA Elections

All of our schools are required to have either a:

  • Parent Association (PA) 
  • Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

These organizations:

  • advocate for students and families
  • update parents and families about the school
  • plan and run activities for parents and families

PA/PTAs can support schools in a number of ways, including: 

  • hosting parent workshops
  • organizing activities for families—both academic and social
  • raising funds
  • running volunteer events
