About Us

San Diego Unified Council of PTAs exists to support the 75 units within San Diego Unified School District.
Our leaders are here to help you at all stages of your PTA year, from creating your budget to electing your next leaders and everything in between. We offer 2-3 general training events prior to the start of school and then more specific seminars for new and old presidents, secretaries and treasurers. No question is too hard for our experts.
