Programs at Schools

A PTA may elect to organize or support educational programs, subject to PTA guidelines and insurance limitations. Such programs could range from hiring staff by gifting monies to school districts, supporting classroom field trips or supporting an academic enrichment program. All projects and programs must be voted on and approved by the current year’s membership before any expenditure may be made.

Staffing, tutoring and enrichment programs must be based on the needs of the school community. Consult with the principal, the faculty, the program director and the parents. The program should have positive benefits for all participants.
