The Board of Directors provides the leadership and management to ensure that the PTO consistently achieves its goals and that it remains financially solvent. The Board of Directors is comprised of parent volunteers in the following positions:


  • 2 Co-Chairs (First and Second-Year Chair)
  • 1 Treasurer (plus an Treasurer-in-Training as necessary)
  • 2 Secretaries (Communications & Recording)
  • 2 Volunteer Coordinators (Lead & Assistant)


Members of the Board of Directors serve a two-year term with the terms of volunteers in each function overlapping by 1 year.   For example, in any given year, the board will have one Chair in the second year of his/her tenure and another in his/her first year.  Terms run July 1-June 30.
