- 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.
- As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.
- The path to excellence starts with a joint commitment of PTA and school leaders to work together to achieve PTA's National Standards for Family-School Partnerships.
- 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.
Oct 1 is the enrollment deadline for the PTA National School of Excellence recognition program for this school year 2016-17. This is an opportunity for you and your school community to survey and evaluate current practices at your school. After submitting the results to PTA, and receiving and implementing unique recommendations based on PTA Standards, you then send the complete application to PTA by June 1. We have so many great PTAs doing great things at your schools, go for it!
