Benefits of PTA Involvement

  • Students know their parents are involved in school decisions.

  • Students benefit from the policies enacted by parent groups.

  • Parents have input into the policies that affect their children’s education.

  • Parents have shared experiences and connections with other families.

  • Teachers and administrators have parent perspectives that inform policy development and decisions.

Research shows that schools with well-structured, consistent parent involvement programs—like PTA—are more likely to experience profound benefits for parents, students, teachers, and overall school quality.
