Parent Association/Parent Teacher Association (PA/PTA)

Each New York City Department of Education school is required to have a Parent Association or a Parent teacher Association (PA/PTA). All parents, step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents and persons in parental relation are automatically members of their school’s PA/PTA.

Officers of a PA/PTA are responsible for the PA/PTA budget, events and activities. PA/PTAs can support schools by raising funds, hosting parent workshops or meetings, organizing festivals, dances or social events for families, and can help schools connect with parents through updates and volunteer opportunities.
