What Is The National PTA?

The National Congress of Parents and Teachers -- the National Parent-Teacher Association -- is the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the United States. An organization of parents, teachers, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities, the PTA is a leader in reminding our nation of its obligations to children. Nearly 6.5 million people belong to this nonprofit, noncommercial, nonsectarian and nonpartisan organization.The National PTA advocates before decision-makers for children's rights to better health, education and well-being, working closely with other national education and health agencies and organizations. It provides current information and offers programs, guidance, publications and training to state and local PTA groups in developing family-centered programs and encouraging parental involvement in all areas of a child's life.

For over 100 years, PTA has been leading the way in improving the lives of America's children and youth. Parent education is a primary part of PTA's philosophy and aids in the association's quest to protect and encourage all children. PTA draws on the experience and input of its
membership and cooperating groups and shares what it has learned through its programs, publications and services.

What Is The Texas PTA?
Texas PTA, with a current membership over 650,000, is a branch of the National PTA. It is organized into 18 geographic areas, 93 councils and more than 2,600 local campus level PTAs. It is governed by a 26 member board of directors, with state headquarters at 408 West 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78701-2113.

The local PTA is a self-governing unit that plans its programs and activities to meet the needs of children and youth in the community. It is at the local level where the programs of service for children and youth are put into action. All other PTA structure--councils, areas and states--are designed to promote and strengthen the work of the Local Unit PTA PTA.
