Explore these 5 areas of PTA team leadership

In LEAD Academy, you'll find courses for every type of learner across a wide breadth of leadership topics. Our curriculum is structured to align with TX PTA priorities and responsibilities as PTA leaders on our campuses. It is focused in these 5 exciting growth-opportunity areas:

Working towards your PTA purpose

While we encourage our PTA leaders to grow in all of these areas, our board roles also lend themselves towards focusing in a particular area. Each is dependent on the other for overall team success.

Our "Outreach" leaders are the first to help build the relationships and connections that serve as the foundation of all that we do. When community members feel connected to an organization, they are more willing to donate time and funds. Our "Stewardship" leaders ensure that resources are raised and allocated in line with our PTA mission.

These resources are raised for 2 primary priorities - education and advocacy. Our "Education" leaders consistently work towards serving our campus community with programs and events that serve to educate and reinforce curriculum. At the same time, our "Advocacy" leaders work to educate our communities on Texas PTA legislative priorities that support the PTA mission for all children. What brings it all together? Our "Communication" leaders ensure our local communities understand why membership matters, where their donations go, and all that PTA does in partnership with parents and teachers.
