What is a PTA?
Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA's) are school-based organizations open to all parents of children currently attending a New York City public school. The PTA is a primary vehicle for parents to get involved in their children’s schools.
What is the role of the PTA?
The PTA helps parents become involved in their children’s education, share ideas, and enrich their school communities. While the specific roles of PTA's vary, among their responsibilities are electing parent members to serve on School Leadership Teams and Community Education Councils, conducting outreach to get other parents involved in school life, and supporting school activities like Parent-Teacher Conferences, open houses and curriculum nights. Each PTA develops its own bylaws, elects officers, and holds regular meetings.
How do I join my school’s PTA?
All parents, step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents and persons in parental relation are automatically members of their school’s PTA. For more specific information on how to get involved, ask your school principal or parent coordinator.
