PTA connects families and schools. By joining PTA you show your children that school matters, and that you are invested in their success. Three decades of research proves that students achieve higher grades, have better attendance and more consistently complete homework when parents are involved – and just the act of joining PTA is a great way to get involved.
PTA helps ensure that parents have a seat at the table when important decisions that affect schools are made. PTA works together to improve the education, health and safety of all children.
Everyone who supports education may join PTA – parents, teachers, students, administrators, community members, business owners, elected officials and more!
PTA annual dues for each local PTA differ from school to school, and help support valuable programs and services for student learning and family engagement. At Goleta Valley Junior High, dues are just $10 per person. The majority of your PTA dues stay with the GVJH PTA, but a portion is sent up to support the work of your council PTA (the Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs), district PTA, California State PTA and National PTA. So, when you pay your $10, you are not only supporting GVJH, but the most powerful children’s advocacy association in the country!
