Documents

Below are important PTO governing documents and meeting minutes.

PTO Constitution & Bylaws

One of the most important documents for PTO is the Constitution & Bylaws, which define the broad rules that govern how PTO is organized and run. Every PTO is required to have bylaws, and every PTO board member should read the bylaws and understand the guidelines. Usually, bylaws cover topics such as the organization of the executive board, how officers are elected, and membership requirements, etc.

The bylaws are reviewed by the PTO executive board annually for updates, and may be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote at a PTO meeting, provided at least one week’s notice has been given to the membership.

PTO Meetings

There are two required PTO meetings each school year: a fall meeting in September to approve the annual budget, and a spring meeting in May to elect new officers and approve a preliminary budget. Our PTO holds a monthly meeting for the Board members and committees to carry on the activities planned for our school. Parents are welcome to attend any of the PTO meetings to learn more about what we do.
