SACRAMENTO – California State PTA will be honored March 2 with an Award of Excellence from the California School Public Relations Association (CalSPRA) for the Education Edition of the PTA in California newsletter.

“We work very hard to create a newsletter that puts vital, engaging student-success tips and information in the hands of all California families,” said California State PTA President Justine Fischer. “California State PTA is thrilled by this special honor from California’s dedicated school and district public-relations professionals.”

Distributed free to schools and families throughout the state, PTA in California’s Education Edition gives parents tools they needed to help their children succeed during the back-to-school season and throughout the school year:

  • Information on student assessments and scores
  • Ways for all families to get engaged in in school communities
  • The latest on science and arts education
  • Tips for parents of students with special needs
  • Homework help
  • And more.

Articles about California’s many complex education changes were written with parents and families in mind. The publication was offered in our state’s six most frequently used languages to help all families understand these issues and to help schools, districts and the California Department of Education bridge communication needs.

PTA in California and many other multilingual family and school resources are available free at; for more information on the CalSPRA awards or the March 2 event, please visit
