About Clark PTSA
As stated by National PTA:
The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
PTA at the local level is linked to the state PTA and the national PTA organization, forming a nationwide network of members working on behalf of all children and youth.
Because of its connections to the state and national PTAs, the local PTA is a valuable resource to its school community with: access to programs to benefit children, youth, and their families [and] Recognition and size to influence the formulation of laws, policies, and practices—education or legislative.
Clark PTSA is a special kind of PTA which includes students. From the National PTA:
PTSAs actually provide youth members with the opportunity to make a difference by developing leadership skills, learning about the legislative process, increasing their self-esteem, and contributing to the school. In turn, adult members gain a new perspective for program development, as well as acquire a better understanding of the youth of today.
