PTA is part of the fabric of the United States’ public-education system and a trusted partner to millions of parents, families, educators and community members, as it advocates for education, welfare, health and safety of all children. PTA has been instrumental in establishing programs and services to improve children’s lives.

“Parent and family engagement is key to student success, and that’s what PTA has being doing for more than a century. PTA Day in California is not only a time to reflect on PTA’s many past accomplishments, but also a time to call on all Californians to continue PTA’s advocacy on children’s issues such as family-engagement programs, increased per-pupil funding and a full curriculum for every child.”– California State PTA President Justine Fischer

A group calling itself the “Parent Teacher Alliance (PTA) Political Action Committee” — run by the California Charter Schools Association Independent Expenditure Campaign (PAC) — is once again running a political campaign, this time in the Los Angeles Unified School District, under the false banner of our trademarked name and renowned reputation.

Please be aware: The real PTA never comments on, endorses or supports individual candidates for office. PTA is a non-partisan association with a long track record of speaking up for all children and connecting families, schools and communities.

If you or other PTA members receive information or obtain written fliers and other materials causing confusion between California State PTA and the Parent Teacher Alliance, please contact California State PTA Executive Director Sherry Skelly Griffith at sgriffith@capta.org or (916) 440-1985.

For more information, see this previous alert. For more about California State PTA’s mission to positively impact the lives of all children and families, visit www.capta.org.
