The PTO is led by an Executive Board that includes a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. PTO activities are also overseen by a number of different standing committees and committee chairs.
Nominations for the next year’s board are accepted in April each year, and in May, the board for the upcoming school year is voted upon. Officers are elected for a term of one calendar year (beginning July 1st and ending on June 30th of the following year) by the general PTO membership. An individual may not serve more than three consecutive years as an officer.
The newly elected Executive Board meets at least once between July 1st and the first PTO meeting of the upcoming fiscal year for the purposes of preparing a balanced budget proposal, school calendar, and to identify fundraisers to be utilized to support the proposed balanced budget. During the school year, there are at least quarterly PTO board meetings and monthly PTO general membership meetings.
