Welcome and Thank You For Visiting Our Website

The Palo Alto Parent Teacher Council (PTAC) is the umbrella organization for all 17 PAUSD school PTA Associations (PTAs/PTSAs). Palo Alto PTAC is a group of core volunteers working to advocate for our children for over 100 years. 

PTA membership provides you with a vote on matters that are important to your family and child. 

Last year, PTA Council volunteers collectively worked thousands of hours to put on PTA events, back-to-school events, Staff appreciation, Principal’s Coffees, and more. PTAC also advocates for district wide issues, as well as inter-school collaborations. In 2018-2019 school year, PTA Council advocated before the PAUSD Board regarding the Stanford University building project to the advantage of schools and staff. We also facilitated secondary school joint parent education events. This year we are partnering with our educational foundation, Partners in Education (PiE), and PAUSD District Departments to bring about fundraising, efficiency in calendaring, and producing relevant and timely work product that impact our kids in this school year.

WHAT YOU CAN DO? 

If you have expertise in any area and a bit of time, then we need you. Join a committee; attend a PTAC meeting (Wednesday).

October 21, 2015

PiE is again partnering with our schools to offer current, fifth grade parents, tours of the PAUSD middle schools:  JLS, Jordan and Terman. Programs at the schools will include a central presentation by principals and staff, a question and answer period, and guided tours across the campus led by a school administrator or counselor.  Only parents are invited to attend these tours. You are welcome to come 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour for some coffee and the chance to meet other incoming parents.  Parking will be limited at all of the schools, so carpooling or biking is encouraged.  Please keep a special watch out for students on bicycles.

Tours should be about 1 to 1.5 hours in length depending on the number of questions asked.

Due to space constraints, the tours are open to current fifth grade parents only.  The timing of the tours at each school is as follows:

JLS:                 8:15 AM in Room 730

Jordan:             8:30 AM & 10 AM in Multi-purpose Room

Terman:            8:15 AM in Library

Please register for a tour here: http://papie.org/schools-of-pausd/school-tours/
