Want to Start a PTA?
Whether you are a parent, caregiver, school official or community leader, starting a PTA in your community is easy!
Each local PTA is a member-led and member-run independent association providing programs, activities and services to support its members and community. All PTAs are established to achieve PTA’s mission. All PTAs must comply with local, state and federal laws and regulations.
Local PTAs are connected to their state PTA, at times a district, council or region PTA within the state and National PTA. These connections form a nationwide network of nearly 4 million members working on behalf of all children and youth.
PTA is flexible … There are a number of different types of PTAs.
