For less than 3 cents a day, you can become a PTA member, joining more than 4 million other people who share your interest in issues affecting children. Everyone - parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities - is invited to join our not-for-profit parent association.
WHY schools NEED PTA
PTA addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. We fight for full funding, quality teachers, and capabilities for schools to thrive. If your school or district does not have a PTA, now is the time. Membership is open to everyone. Your PTA is autonomous but supported by a national structure - it sets its own dues.
Some of PTA’s Benefits
Leverage Volunteer PowerPTA organizes hard-working, dedicated volunteers. Parents are ready to help implement school improvement programs.
Improve CommunicationPTAs frequently coordinate production of a school newsletter and information fliers, keeping the entire school community informed of current events, issues, and accomplishments. Regular meetings allow PTAs to share information with members.
See Measurable ResultsMore than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases.
Discover More DollarsLocal PTAs are self-funding. By inviting the entire school’s parent community to join, they generate membership fees to pay for programs. Local PTA fundraisers support school programs, building improvements, and educational events.
Tap into Proven ProgramsLocal PTAs have access to ready-made, easy-to-use programs with proven success records. From health and safety topics, to collaborating with teachers and community members, to fundraising, the programs get results.
Boost Children’s Well-BeingPTAs focus on what students need to be successful in their learning, including nutrition, health, school safety, physical fitness and general well-being. PTA works with schools to ensure that children succeed.
Enjoy Informed ParentsInvolved parents understand the challenges schools face and become part of the solution. By developing a closer relationship with parents, student achievement improves, and the school develops a positive reputation in the community.
Fulfill ESSA ObligationsFinally, PTAs can help schools fulfill the parent involvement requirement of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). PTA understands the needs behind ESSA. In fact, it’s National PTA’s definition of parent involvement that is used in ESSA.
