WHY BEST PRACTICES
What are Best Practices?
A checklist of items that a local PTA should follow to be the best local unit it can be.
Why Best Practices?
To guide our PTAs to be child focused, fiscally responsible, practice fiduciary responsibility, knowledgeable, involved, and well trained. Following Best Practices makes earning the Standards of Excellence award easier to apply for and receive.

REMEMBER…following Best Practices does not mean you have to check off everything on the list. Your goal should be to check off more this year than last year and/or improve on those items you do check off. If you do not check off something this year, work with your board to come up with ways to accomplish it next year.
DESIGNATED SCHOOL EVENT NIGHTS
Designated school nights are designed in an attempt to avoid conflict in elementary, middle, and high school events. Schools and PTAs are asked to abide by this schedule as much as possible. Please also consider checking the school board and your feeder school event calendar as well. Click HERE for pdf.
