PTA Leaders
Your PTA leaders are at the forefront of changing policies, improving schools and taking action to give a voice to every child, including yours. Getting to know them ensures that your voice will be heard when it's time to act, and your input and experiences can help shape the educational changes that will take place at the school and in your community.

"Every parent should meet with the PTA leaders and parent engagement coordinators in your school," says National PTA president Charles J. "Chuck" Saylors. "This will help you learn how to become more engaged in your child's education and improve their achievement both in the classroom and in life. Afterward, take the next step and become a PTA member yourself."
