Delaware PTA Position Statements

National PTA position statements are adopted by the National PTA Board of Directors. All National PTA position statements become the positions of state and local units. National PTA Position Statements are official documents outlining the opinion, will, or intent of the association to address national problems, situations, or concerns that affect children and youth and require national action to seek resolution on the issue. National PTA has adopted hundreds of position statements on a wide variety of national education, health, and safety issues since its first convention in 1897.

National PTA Position Statements

Often times during our advocacy, Delaware PTA will formally adopt a position regarding a specific legislative proposal or develop a position in response to community events that will impact the education, health and/or welfare of our children.   Our position statements are formulated by the Advocacy Committee and submitted to our state board for approval by majority vote. All approved position statements are in alignment with the mission and objectives of National PTA and the State PTA. Delaware PTA Position Statements can be adopted by an individual, unit, or district at our annual state convention and must not conflict with National PTA positions
