Why PTA?

Sixteenth District PTA is comprised of more than 8,000 parents and other concerned adults devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools.

Sixteenth District PTA flourishes in 36 schools in Marin, Lassen and Plumas Counties. Together with other District and State PTAs, we harness the energy and talents of millions of volunteers to:

  1. Provide a powerful voice for all children

  2. Provide relevant resources for families and communities

  3. Be champions for the education and well-being of every child

The term PTA is commonly used to describe any parent group. But the differences between PTA and other parent groups are many. Here are a few to consider:

  • Running a tax-exempt, 501(c) non-profit organization can sometimes be complex -- especially when school volunteers change from year to year. PTA provides training and local help on best practices and the latest regulations in the areas of fundraising, financial duties, membership drives, advocacy and so much more. 

  • PTA provides highly affordable insurance for its units including  $1 million in liability per occurrence and covers officers and chair members.
