SCHOOL COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS RELATIONS

 

 

A school can only be as successful as the chief administrative officer is skillful in utilizing the talents of parents and other members of the community in a decision making capacity. For this reason, it is important that community groups and associations play a strong role in the local school.

 

1.

The PTA has long been among the strongest supporters of public education. In fact, the PTA playing an involved and active role is vital to the success of any school organization.  Principals, teachers, and all other staff members shall seek to strengthen and support the Parent Teachers Association by cooperating in any way possible to provide assistance, materials, facilities or other aid to assist the PTA in helping the schools.

 

2.

Each school should make a systematic effort to identify community groups and organizations which are interested in schools and have resources that would enhance the learning program. Plans should be made to cooperate with and to involve such groups in the school program.
