The National PTA School of Excellence recognition program supports partnerships between parents and school leaders. The goal is to open the lines of communication within school communities so they can think critically about student needs and make data-driven decisions that yield positive, long-term results.
We are excited to acknowledge and celebrate the strong partnerships between local California PTA/PTSAs and schools that will enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of students in their school communities.
The enrollment period for the 2021-2022 National PTA School of Excellence program will be open until October 1, 2021.
Enrollment is now open for the coming school year. By enrolling in this program, your PTA and school administrators are making a year-long commitment to identifying and implementing an action plan for school improvement based on PTA’s National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and Transformative Family Engagement.
Once enrolled, local PTAs will gain access to free tools to run their School of Excellence program. Local PTAs are encouraged to enroll early to start building their Excellence Teams and to familiarize themselves with the steps in the program process.
