2nd VP - Parent Education Programs


inspire with PTA

By establishing committees on education, parent involvement, community concerns, health and safety, PTAs are well equipped to address issues of concern to their community. Issues like parent involvement, violence, and drug use are best handled at the local level by the parents/guardians, students, and teachers who face these challenges every day.

PTA activities and programs, including the Reflections Program, Founders Day, graduation, and community wellness fairs, are an excellent introduction to the work of the PTA to improve homes, schools, and communities. Local units can use these opportunities to increase their exposure and support beyond the base of traditional membership.

Ready. Set. Achieve!


The biggest factors in student success are active and engaged families, educators and community. Our Ready. Set. Achieve! programs empower parents, teachers and students by highlighting the potential impact of bullying, modern technology and the new and evolving culture that our students and children are experiencing every day. Most importantly, we want to raise awareness among families that positive adult-role models and supporting our children as parents and mentors can make a huge difference in the life of every child!

Ready. Set. Achieve! education programs are a benefit of having a PTA on your campus and are brought to you at no cost! Your PTA may request up to two programs per school year. Texas PTA will provide the following:
