PTA Council

At South Colonie, the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is at the core of our educational community. Our PTA Groups play a pivotal role in shaping the educational experience for our students and fostering a strong sense of partnership between parents, teachers, and the school district.

The South Colonie PTA Council meets on Mondays each month. The meetings begin at 7 p.m. and are overseen by our four PTA Council officers, who are elected each year from the membership that represent the individual school PTAs. The Superintendent of Schools and members of the South Colonie Board of Education are also a part of the Council.

Each of our district’s schools are also encouraged to have representation at these meetings by sending its school principal, PTA president and two school PTA representatives. For more information about the PTA Council, please email the PTA Council President below.

About PTA Council

Each of South Colonie’s eight schools has its own Parent-Teacher Association or PTA — each with the goal of supporting the educational program in any way it can. This support can range from hosting parent help programs and after school activities to sponsoring field trips or musical performances.

But who is there to support the school PTAs? That’s where the South Colonie District PTA Council gets involved. The PTA Council is designed to be a resource to the individual school PTAs by answering questions and sharing ideas for special events and programs.

The Council also serves as a link to the district, state and national PTAs. The PTA Council’s role is to unify PTA activities and provide a way for school PTAs to collaborate on projects that an individual PTA could not accomplish alone. In short, the Council is there to help.
