Everett PTSA Council is proud to host WSPTA Approved Trainings!
Training is essential to the success of every PTA. Per WSPTA Standards of Affiliation, each PTA has an annual training requirement of at least one elected officer attending "PTA and the Law," and all other elected officers each attending at least one WSPTA-approved training before the WSPTA Convention (May 15-17, 2020). Each PTA must maintain documentation indicating each elected officer has satisfied the annual training requirement. Council-led WSPTA-approved Trainings follow our Council Membership Meetings. All PTA leaders in the Everett School District are encouraged to participate in our meetings (6:30pm Call to Order) and Council-led trainings (7:30pm start)! Unless otherwise noted, Council Meetings & Trainings will be held at 3900 Broadway, Everett.
