The School of Excellence Registration Deadline is Extended to October 15

National PTA School of Excellence is a recognition program that supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.

Through the School of Excellence program, your PTA and school will gain new ways to engage families in school decision-making, such as improvements to programs, practices and policies related to education, health, safety or the arts.

The benefits of the School of Excellence program to schools and children are great. Check out the report here.

Enrollment extended to October 15 for the 2016-2017 school year.
