Access to Opportunities (Programs/DEI)

PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality. As an association dedicated to speaking for every child with one voice, we are deeply committed to furthering diversity, equity and inclusion across America. We believe every child has the right to a high-quality public education.

To achieve this, PTAs across the country are committed building a strong community and providing opportunities for all children to realize their full potential. Through special programs and inclusive, school-wide initiatives, PTAs can make a true impact on every student.

The PTAs featured below are making a difference by offering students access to opportunities to help them grow and thrive.

Access to Opportunities

Twin Echo Elementary PTA

Collinsville, Ill.

To keep the Twin Echo Elementary school community in Collinsville, Ill., connected and to give everyone the same opportunity to learn, the PTA used their COVID-19 Relief Grant sponsored by TikTok to purchase the One School, One Book program, which provides books to every student with grade appropriate lessons. Students across the school were reading the same books at the same time! The PTA shared pictures and videos of students and teachers all reading their books, bringing the community together while distance learning. #HowWePTA #PTAProud

In their own words:
Throughout the project, families would share pictures of their children working through the books and packets. We loved seeing the excitement for literacy!
