Welcome to the Cupertino-Fremont-Sunnyvale Council of PTAs (CFSCPTA) website.  

CFSCPTA includes a total of 28 PTA/PTSAs.  Eighteen of these are in the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD), 5 in the Fremont Union High School District (FUHSD) and 5 are in the Sunnyvale School District (SSD).   


Our council is a member of the 6th district PTA of the Santa Clara County. We serve as a resource for 

all things pertaining to PTA policy, to hold meetings with PTA representatives from all schools to 

find a common ground to effectively advocate for our children and to provide leadership training for PTA officers.


The Most Important Committee

It might seem early, but it's a great time to start thinking about who would be wonderful to serve on your unit's nominating committee. 

True or False
1. The president appoints the nominating committee.
2. The principal automatically is a member of the nominating committee.

Most units need to elect their nominating committees in January or February (please check your bylaws for the exact month). 

Please visit CAPTA's website for more information on Nominations and Elections. OR come to parliamentarian training on Tuesday, Nov 17 (info below).

  1. False - The nominating committee is the only PTA committee that is not appointed by the president.
  2. False - The principal may be elected as a member of the nominating committee. If not elected, the principal should at least be an advisor to the group.
