Running a PA/PTA
Running a PA/PTA
What does it take to run a PA/PTA? Officers have specific obligations but members play important roles as well. Understanding what's involved can help your PA/PTA be effective and operate smoothly.
Many PA/PTAs contribute to their schools by creating community-building activities, student enrichment programs, and events for families.
While PA/PTAs are not obligated to raise money, there are many creative options for those groups that choose to collect funds to improve schools and enrich students’ education.
