PTO Presidents Council (PPC)

The PTO Presidents Council (PPC) is comprised of each school's PTO President or designee. The group meets the second Tuesday of each month September through April. 

The PPC affords PTO presidents the opportunity to learn about issues affecting the school district, share information with each other, and serve as a sounding board for the superintendent and the Board of Education. Those wanting more information may contact:
