PA/PTA Resources

NYC schools are required to have either a Parent Association (PA)  or a Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  "PA" is a Parent Association and "PTA" is a Parent/Teacher Association. In you monthly meeting, parents can vote as to which type of entity they will be establishing.

These organizations advocate for students and families, update parents and families about the school plan, and run activities for parents and families. PA/PTA's can support schools in a number of ways, including:  hosting parent workshops, organizing activities for families (both academic and social), by raising funds and running volunteer events.
