Your Voice Makes a Difference

By voting on the business of the association, you are bringing forward the important voice of your community and your PTA unit to help shape the future of California State PTA.

Join thousands of PTA parent-volunteer advocates and leaders along with educators and community leaders in San Jose on April 28-30, 2017, to address education, health and community issues affecting our state’s kids and families.

Convention Volunteers Needed

California State PTA is looking for a handful of dedicated volunteers willing to work three full-time days at the 2017 California State PTA Annual Convention in San Jose. We will provide parking and a non-voting convention registration.

Volunteers will be working primarily in the PTA Store, and will have an opportunity attend at least one workshop. Additionally, because the PTA Store is closed on Sunday, volunteers may attend any Sunday workshops and the final general meeting, too.

  • Dates: Thursday, April 27 to Saturday, April 29
  • Time: 8 am to 7 pm, each day (with scheduled breaks)

The New California School Dashboard

The new California School Dashboard was released to the public on March 15th. You will be able to see a report card on how your school and school district did last year on multiple measures. How did your school do? How are students doing?

Resources to learn more:
  • An easy-to-use online tool for navigating the state’s groundbreaking new accountability and continuous improvement system.
  • Because comparisons can be useful and helpful, EdSource has created a searchable and sortable chart that enables a user to see all of the schools by city, county and school district, with their color ratings on all available indicators. They can be sorted by level of performance, from red to blue – lowest to highest – or blue to red, to identify best performing schools.
