IMPORTANT NOTE FROM ACPTA
WHO CAN SERVE AS A PTA OFFICER? ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS THE MISSION OF PTA!
ACPTA wants to be certain that all schools understand and honor the rule that ANYONE who supports the mission of PTA is eligible to serve as a PTA officer. There have been news reports alleging that some parents at Andrews Elementary were told they could not serve as campus PTA officers because of their immigration status. That is NOT a barrier to serving as a PTA officer, and all campuses must keep that in mind – especially now, while PTAs are holding elections for the 2019-2020 school year.
Our district’s PTAs are fortunate to have successful and powerful parent leaders from many different backgrounds serving AISD students and campus communities. ACPTA encourages and supports ANY member of a campus community who is interested in serving as a PTA officer. Our volunteers are available to offer help, support, and guidance if your PTA wants or needs that.
If you have questions, please email us:
- Lynn Boswell, ACPTA President, email@example.com
- Vanessa Santamaria-Dainton, VP of Diversity and Inclusion, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Choni Hajibashi, VP of Vertical Teams, email@example.com
WHO IS ACPTA?
Austin Council of PTAs is a membership organization made up of PTA Presidents, Principals, and ACPTA Delegates at schools within the Austin ISD area. We have general membership meetings and provide trainings, workshops, board orientations, and many opportunities to connect with other PTA leaders, the district, and the community in Austin.
