Advocacy is one of the cornerstones of the PTA. As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.
Every PTA unit in San Diego Unified Council of PTAs is asked to provide a representative to the Ninth District PTA Legislative Meetings. Presidents, you are invited to attend or better yet, appoint a Legislative Chair to your board to attend these meetings and report back to your PTA. Follow the Ninth District link on the sidebar to find out about what is going on in our area and how to get involved. The Ninth District is currently holding their meetings using webinars. This allows them to provide access to the community without leaving home.
