Every Atlanta Public School has a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) whose goal is to bring together the interests of the parents and the school to support student achievement. PTAs normally meet once a month. Through PTA initiatives and activities, parents work with the faculty to enhance the school environment and improve student achievement. WHAT DOES THE PTA DO?
Support and organize schoolwide events
Provide a forum to discuss issues of importance to parents and teachers
Provide the volunteers and the organization needed to support school projects
Conduct fundraising for school activities
Assist with special school projects development, landscaping or community outreach
HOW DO I JOIN THE PTA? Contact your school for information regarding membership meetings, dues and activities.
