Who does PTA Serve?
PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America, comprised of over 24,000 local PTAs and 4 million members. As part of this nationwide network, parents have a voice in decisions that impact children in their individual schools, and at the district, state and national levels.
Why is PTA important?
- PTA bridges the gap between schools and families.
- Children perform better in school when their parents are engaged.
- Over the past 120 years, PTA has helped solve some of the biggest issues facing America’s children. Many of the structures all children benefit from today—child labor laws, universal kindergarten, the National School Lunch Program, education reforms, and the juvenile justice system—were accomplished as a result of PTA members’ advocacy.
What does it mean to be a PTA member at our school?
- Being committed to our school community, being informed, and helping to guide our decision-making processes

Why is membership important?
- Our membership dues support Ohio and National PTA by helping to sustain advocacy efforts.
- Our membership dues help us to remain in good standing with Ohio and National PTA.

- We receive assistance and support for legal matters e.g. bylaws, non-profit status.
