Membership

WHY JOIN PTA?

PTA membership shows your passionate support for schools and public education.

PTAs work in partnership with schools and communities to ensure children have the greatest opportunity to reach their potential.

PTAs at the local, state and national levels advocate on behalf of children on matters of education, health and safety.  Higher membership numbers indicate greater support for these initiatives.  In fact, there are nearly 500,000 PTA members in Texas, of which more than 20,000 are PTA members in the RISD Council of PTAs.  Your membership counts, quite literally, and reflects that you indeed Back The Future.

 

Each year, from August 1 - April 15, RISD Council of PTAs offers our Angel Membership packages for those who would like to purchase memberships in multiple RISD PTAs. We have a variety of membership packages from the 20 most in-need PTAs to creating your own option, or joining PTAs by learning community. To learn more about Angel memberships and to join as an Angel member, click the "Join Now" button below. To see a current list of Angel Members, scroll to the bottom of this page.
