Cedar Fork Elementary PTA Home Page



The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a organization that brings parents and teachers together so they can work towards improving the lives and education of students.  With your membership, it enables the PTA to provide each student with art, music, literacy and enriching cultural art assemblies as well as the benefits of all the other enhancement programs the P
TA provides. 

If you have any questions about PTA events or programs, please contact PTA President, Erin Schawel, at president@cedarforkpta.net.

TELL NCGA TO FIX CLASS SIZE CHAOS!

On January 10 2018, the North Carolina State Legislative is coming back to Raleigh

 Let us remind them that our public schools are still in need of dedicated funds for 2018. It is not fair for parents and teachers to worry about the impending crisis caused by the K-3 class size restriction. 

Sign today here to ask the NCGA to fully fund specials position and invest in our children! 

 


CLASS SIZE RESOLUTION

On January 4th 2018, the North Carolina PTA Board of Directors adopted the three following class size resolutions:

1) Encourages the North Carolina General Assembly (NCGA) to fully fund the class size mandate and allows school districts adequate time over a period of years to implement the new limits;

2) Alternatively requests that the General Assembly restore local flexibility over class size to the original House Bill 13, which allows local districts flexibility to change the Kindergarten to Third student ratio;

3) and/or establish a hardship waiver for school districts whose quality of education will be diminished through the class size mandate.

Lastly, the North Carolina PTA requests the NCGA to resolve the class size issue quickly, as waiting until the short session in May will be too late for school districts as they plan budgets and make hiring decisions for the 2018-2019 school year.
