Parent Teacher Association
The objectives of the PTA are to provide support and resources to the school for the benefit and educational growth of the children; to develop a cooperative working relationship between the parents and staff of our school; to develop parent leadership and build capacity for greater involvement; to foster and encourage parent participation on all levels; and to provide opportunities and training for parents to participate in school governance and decision-making.
Parents of students currently attending STAR Academy are automatically members of the PTA. Parents include parents by birth or adoption, step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents, and persons in parental relation to a child currently attending STAR Academy. At the beginning of each school year, the association shall send a welcome letter to inform parents of their automatic membership status and voting rights.
