IMPORTANT:
Understanding Your PTA's Insurance

Every PTA has liability insurance that protects not only the PTA but also its officers and members. Your PTA pays an annual premium for this. But do you know what's covered and what isn't? This is important -- you DON'T want to host an event, have a problem, and then discover that you're not insured! So please, please, before you plan an event, [click here] to check the coverage details and restrictions.

 
e-Bylaws
Parliamentarians: e-Bylaws is now available to Units in Sixth District. Please [click here] to request your user profile. Note: we are in Phase Two of pilot testing of this program. Please provide feedback to State PTA to help them refine the system. Thank you for your participation & your patience!
Questions & feedback: e-bylaws@capta.org.
 
 
 
A warm welcome to all who visit our Sixth District website!  Thank you for the time, energy and enthusiasm you share in supporting PTA in and across our local communities. Please stay in touch, and contact us with any questions, concerns and, yes, ideas.

What Does the
PTA logo
Do? and Why?

As leaders, we know that the PTA isn't just about carnivals and fundraising -- for 119 years, we've been the nation's largest volunteer child advocacy organization. But what does that mean? What have we done, what are we doing now, and why do we do what we do?  [Click here]  for our new booklet that you can read online, print, distribute, and share not just with your members, but also with friends & with school and district leadership. Use it at meetings, at events, and in your membership drives!
