PTA Core Values
 
  • California State PTA is a professional, nonprofit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children.
  • We believe every adult has a responsibility to ensure  that all children develop to their full potential.
  • We believe parents are children’s first teachers and that parent involvement is essential throughout a child’s educational experience.
  • We believe that family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all children, and we recognize that “the family” may be defined in many ways.
  • We believe our responsibility includes advocating for the safety and welfare of all children and the opportunity for a quality public education for each child
