At the heart of every PTA is family. Families make up the community in which every school PTA should build relationships to support our students, teachers, and administrators as they prepare children to be the future contributing members of our communities.

Let’s make sure that family and community engagement is transformative and actually supports student outcomes. Transformative family engagement is a shared effort of families, schools and community leaders to advance programs, practices and policies that empower every parent to make their child’s potential a reality.
