Welcome to the ONLINE TOOLKIT!

The California State PTA Toolkit provides guidance, instruction and ideas to support a successful PTA term. I hope you will utilize this valuable tool to assist your PTA/PTSA with the important work that you do on behalf of all children and families in California.

The online Toolkit includes all of the information and chapters in an easy format for quick access. You can click on the drop-down menus to find key topics, and use the search tool or view the more detailed table of contents for each section to quickly find the information you are looking for. You can also “toggle” between the English and Spanish versions as well as download and print certain pages, chapters or the entire Toolkit.

The Toolkit reflects the hard work of the California State PTA Board of Managers to create the best possible resource for you. It is based on more than 100 years of best practices by PTAs around our state. Many of your questions and concerns can be answered here. Remember, if you can’t find it in the Toolkit, you can reach out to your council, district or state PTA to answer your questions.

We review the Toolkit on an ongoing basis and make updates after Board of Managers adoption.  Typically updates are made in June and December. You can find a quick list of changes by clicking the “list of recent updates” link to the right-hand margin. One free hard copy of the Toolkit is available for order as part of the annual service mailing. These orders must be received between July and October 1 of the current year. Additional hard copies can be purchased online

Your input is valuable, and we welcome help to insure all PTA materials are useful and relevant. Please contact us at info@capta.org with ideas, suggestions and comments.

Thank you for all you do. You are a valuable part of our association and I look forward to working with you in the term to come.
