It doesn’t take much time to get a parent-teacher organization started. Find just one parent in your school/community to take the lead, and before you know it, there will be a group of dedicated parents doing what parent teacher organizations do best: providing resources and programs to all families, students, teachers, and school staff. In six steps you can create the organization that works best for your community. FACES has prepared sample materials and gathered resources to guide you as you and your team build the foundation of engaged and committed parent leaders.
FACES has a University of Family Learning (UFL) course, Parent Organizations… The Choice is Yours, which can be offered at your school. Contact your school principal to request this course at your school site. The presentation and additional resources can be found below.
