The National PTA has not lost its focus for over 100 years.
"Every child. One voice"

As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students. Since its creation in 1897, the National PTA has never lost sight of its goal: to better the lives of children.


Does PTSA award student Scholarships?

Yes! Must be a member. Students can earn scholarships and financial awards for PTSA National, State, and Local competitions too.


What is the PTSA?

The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is the nation's largest child advocacy organization. It is a non-profit organization that is organized at the National, State and Local level and run entirely by volunteers. Our local PTSA provides many educational and social programs to benefit students and families as well as to support teachers in the classroom. 


If I join the PTSA, do I have to volunteer?

NO! While we depend on volunteers to run our programs and we greatly appreciate their time, we understand that not all families have this flexibility. By joining, your membership dues help support our programs and help give the State and National PTA's a stronger voice when they support legislation that benefits children.


Do PTSA Board Members or volunteers get paid?

NO! PTSA Board Members and volunteers give their time to help the students, staff and community. We welcome anyone who is willing to assist. Our volunteers work very hard to promote a comfortable atmosphere for learning.


Why should both parents /care givers / students join the PTSA?

We encourage all community members to join the PTSA and we encourage all to attend our meetings and volunteer for activities. As mentioned above, your membership dues help support our programs and help give the State and National PTSA's a stronger voice when they support legislation that benefits children.


How many PTSAs can I join and do I have to pay dues to each one?

You may join as many PTSA’s as you like (e.g. preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school.) Your voice is important in each school building. You have to pay full dues to each organization you join. 


I do not like fundraisers but I would like to support the PTSA. What can I do?

You may make a tax-deductible contribution to the PTSA anytime during the year. Since the PTA is a 501(c)3 organization you may also request a matching donation from your employer. We run  fundraiser each year and our budget is based on what we are able to raise at that time.


How do I know that PTSA funds are being used for our children?

Any parent, care giver, or community member is welcome to participate in ALL PTSA events/meetings. Our records ae not confidential and we would provide documentation on how our PTSA funds are distributed.


What is the best way to receive information from the PTA and to find out what is happening?

Aside from attending PTSA General Membership Meetings, the best way to receive PTSA information is to sign up for our remind and email posts. 


How do I sign up to volunteer?

There are opportunities to volunteer both inside and outside of the building. PTSA and volunteer opportunities will be available for every possible time consideration throughout the year.  Please express any specific area you feel your talents could be utilized. You may also need to be a LAUSD approved volunteer for some of our volunteer opportunities. reach out to the Parent Center for more information.


What if I have an idea for a new PTSA activity or program?

Please contact any of the PSTA officers. We welcome ALL new ideas!
