Parent Teacher Student Association


PTA was established in 1897, over 100 years ago. PTA represents a force in the nation that speaks for all children- a unified voice on major issues, a unified push for improved legislation, an opportunity to act as a forum for ideas, and a chance to meet with others and discuss mutual concerns.
By: NC PTA Handbook for Local Unit 1and Council Presidents/2005-06

NCPTA is North Carolina’s oldest and largest volunteer organization advocating for the education, health, safety, and success of all children and youth while building strong families and communities.
