At a time when PTA budgets are tight and schedules are even tighter, e-learning is a solution for members looking to expand their skills cost-effectively and without the need to travel. This e-learning initiative is a step toward achieving PTA’s goal of making all members informed advocates by 2020.

Choose from the following courses, and look for new courses to be added throughout the year. Each course takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete and can be revisited repeatedly for more practice.

  • PTA Basics
  • Grant Writing
  • Conflict Management
  • Planning Your New PTA Year
  • Parliamentary Procedure
  • Running a Successful PTA Program
  • Effective Advocacy for Your Child
  • Writing and Proposing PTA Resolutions
