Parent Organizations

Parent organizations play an important role in the support of our schools. They go by different names at different schools-- PTA, PTO, PFC, FFC, Booster Club, etc.  We use the term Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) here to refer to any of these groups.

PTOs:

  • Leverage volunteers to support the school
  • Help inform and engage all school parents
  • Generate funds to support the school
  • Are valuable ambassadors in the community
  • Are not created equal. There are many types, and they vary widely, especially from elementary school to middle school to high school.
  • Are not an advisory panel to the principal and administration. Most principals have a site council or other advisory panel that serves that function.
 

Share your thoughts, ideas and questions with other PTOs in our district!
