Save the date: FDR HS PTA Elections May 31, 2018 6:15PM- 7:15PM
A Parent Association (PA) or Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is the official organization of the parent body in a school. Every New York City public school is required by the State Education Law and the DOE’s Chancellor’s Regulations to have one, and all parents of children in a school -- including step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents and persons in parental relation -- are automatically members of their school’s PA/PTA. Because of their guaranteed rights and responsibilities, PA/PTAs can be the most direct vehicle for parent involvement in the schools, allowing parents to serve as partners both in their children’s educations and in the schools themselves.
PA/PTA officers’ terms are one year, from July 1 to June 30
Mandatory PA/PTA officers are president, treasurer and recording secretary.
The PTA’s executive board runs the organization; it also serves as the parents’ voice and agent for action. Parents elect board officers (the president, treasurer, recording secretary, at a minimum) to represent their interests and act on their behalf, and the board must consult with them regularly and hold votes on important issues and decisions.
All Positions are Open for Nominations:
SLT members, including students and CBO representatives, are eligible to receive an annual remuneration of $300. Members may receive the fee upon completing 30 hours of service on the SLT and attending a mandatory DOE training session relating to CEPs and budget issues each year. Members who attend less than 30 hours of the training may request remuneration on a
pro-rata basis. Members must choose whether to accept the annual remuneration, or waive it and donate the funds to be used for other school purpose.
