The City requires each school to maintain a Parent Association (PA), composed of and established by vote of parents.

For more information, contact your school's Principal or Parent Association President.

Contact your school.

Call 311 for assistance by phone.



[12146 M-F: 8A-6P]

A Parent Association (PA) is a group in which all members are parents or guardians of students in the school. 

A Parent Teacher Association (PTA) includes both parents and teachers.

Parent Association membership is open to parents, legal guardians, and people in a parental relationship with a student.

This rule is included in the Chancellor's Regulations.

Download the Chancellor's Regulations.

If you have a job at your child's school, you can still join the Parent Association, but you may not be on the PA or PTA Executive Board.
