Running Your PTA

A PTA organization comes with a tremendous support network that can help parents stay involved in their child’s school without taking on undue personal risks. When you join your local unit PTA you are supporting your child and all children at that school. Your support helps provide support for classroom teachers, as well as resources and programs for the students and the school.

There are many ways you can show your support:

  1. Become a member of your PTA
  2. Consider joining the board of your PTA
  3. Consider joining or chairing a committee with your PTA
  4. Attend PTA meetings whenever you can
  5. Stay connected – follow the Delaware State PTA and your Local PTA on social media
