State PTA Information

Arizona PTA was established in 1906 by Mrs. Emery Keyes and is one of the oldest State PTA Congresses in National PTA’s history. We are an active, all-volunteer board which supports and provides the training, resource development, mentorship, and guidance to the local school PTAs around Arizona. We advocate at the Arizona State Legislature in the areas of children’s health and safety, public education, and family engagement.

Why Involvement Matters

Research proves that parent involvement has a positive effect on student success. When parents are involved in their children's education, they achieve more. Schools perform better. Teacher moral even improves. Ultimately, communities are stronger when parents get involved. PTA offers a number of annual campaigns and resources encouraging parent involvement. Start here to review our resources and tools to help you get involved.

Family Involvement

Family Involvement is crucial to the health and well-being of a child. As a parent, you are the most important influence in your child's success in school and in life. In this role, you have a fresh opportunity every day to get involved with your child.

Parent involvement in children’s education allows kids to perform better in school, and navigate more easily some of the challenges of growing up, such as bullying.

PTA is committed to being the leading resource for parent involvement. We offer comprehensive resources for helping parents get involved and stay involved in the lives of their children.

Male Involvement

Studies show students perform better when mothers and fathers are both involved in the education of their children. Men and women think differently and bring different perspectives and skills to school and PTA activities. School communities and PTAs thrive when both men and women participate. Yet men remain a largely untapped resource. Learn ways to get men more involved through these male involvement/father involvement tools and initiatives. Check out resources and tools to engage fathers.
