PTA Philosophy

Research shows that family involvement promotes student success. Students with involved parents are more likely to
  • Earn higher grades and pass their classes,
  • Attend school regularly and have better social skills,
  • Go on to postsecondary education.
  • When families, schools, and communities work together,
  • Student achievement improves,
  • Teacher morale rises,
  • Communication increases,
  • Family, school, and community connections multiply.
PTA’s process for building successful partnerships starts with the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and consists of three steps:
  • Raising awareness about the power of family and community involvement.
  • Taking action to cultivate involvement through specific programs and practices.
  • Celebrating success as your school sees increased involvement and its impact.
