Your Vote Counts!

Make your voice heard for your child and school.

November 8 is Election Day in California and across the nation.

Laws enacted by local, state and national bodies are primary sources of public policy. Securing adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth is one of the purposes of PTA. As a non-partisan association with a long track record of speaking up for all families and connecting families, schools and communities, PTA never comments on, endorses or supports individual candidates for office. However, the association does take positions on bills and initiatives that impact the education, health and well-being of California’s children and families.
