    • We will need to vote on this at next meeting or have an additional meeting in June

    • May help with teacher restriction, they can help make decisions

*can students sit in and be a part of PA/PTA to voice concerns

-according to regulations they can not

   -maybe they can sit separate w/PA or rep to discuss issues that can be brought to                the discussion

  • The teachers involved will not be on the PA Executive board, but will have the ability to be included on votes

    • Available positions for PA are, President, Secretary and Treasurer

      • President will be the one on the forefront and in for all

      • Vice President backs up the President if they can not be present

      • Secretary does all the recording for meetings, getting out communications and keeping you informed

      • Treasurer works with all of the PA Budget, money & finances. So if you think you’re good with numbers and figures and can do it you should try

    • As you think about running, think about what it would take to be on the board.   Having your voice heard. What it would take if you would like to see changes in your school.

    • Bylaws state that we can run for “co” positions or single in the roles

    • Next year it should be considered to have parents submit ballots/bio at least 30 days prior to election so that the election can go smoothly and parents will know who they would like to vote for ahead of time.
