The Virginia PTA, our governing PTA body, presents Proposed Legislative Action Items and Position Statements each year to determine PTA members’ support. The 2013 Proposed Legislation Program includes the following issues:
LEGISLATIVE ACTION ITEM #1:
The Virginia PTA supports legislation and policy that offers public schools reasonable flexibility within school system guidelines, procurement and calendars in an effort to encourage academic success.
LEGISLATIVE ACTION ITEM #2:
The Virginia PTA supports legislation that reserves the privilege of participation in public school extracurricular activities to full-time public school students.
POSITION STATEMENT #1:
Virginia PTA supports full implementation, in all school divisions, of the Virginia Department of Education’s Model Student Conduct and School Discipline Policy.
Virginia PTA encourages all local and council PTAs to actively engage in the development, review, and dissemination of local student conduct and school discipline policies.
To vote on these issues, current PTA members are asked to print the 2013 PLP ballot and return it to James River Elementary by Friday, October 19, 2012.
If you have any questions about these items, the rationale or history, please do not hesitate to contact the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
