According to Governor Newsom, most school districts are preparing for the possibility that they will not return to school this school year. At the beginning of this health crisis, CA State PTA had advised that during this time PTA's can hold their executive board meetings via teleconference, regardless of whether they have recently updated their bylaws with this feature.
As the situation has further developed, CA State PTA has advised that they are granting emergency permission for local PTA's to hold their General association meetings (including elections) by teleconference (Thru 6/30/20) The following must apply:
  • PROPER NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS
  • Everyone on the call can hear/participate
  • Quorum is met through roll call of members
  • All votes are recorded in the minutes

National PTA Launches Webpage to Support Families and Educators During COVID-19 Crisis

As all of us navigate this health crisis, we want to ensure that you have access to the tools, resources, and most importantly—the community of peers—that can help you manage your family easier and do your job better through this unprecedented time.

To help you, your family and your school community, we have created a webpage available at PTA.org/COVID-19. Among the many resources on the webpage are:

  • Guides for families on social and emotional support, learning at home and healthy habits
  • Tips for educators to teach from home, support their students and for self-care
  • Strategies for PTA leaders to meet the needs of their school community and sustain their PTA throughout the pandemic.

While our utmost priority is speaking up for the health and safety of all students, educators, staff and families, we are also committed to YOU, our PTA members. If there is a resource you need that isn't yet on the webpage, please tell us via this survey.
