National PTA School of Excellence
We have rejuvenated the National PTA School of Excellence program to help PTAs strengthen the family-school partnership and make measurable progress together in one of three areas:
- Health and safety
- Arts and cultural exploration
At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.
Enrollment for the 2013-2014 school year is now closed. Enrollment will open again April 2014! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
