Our Mission

The Mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership and communication. (July 2007, California PTA State Board of Managers)


The purpose of this association, in common with the purposes of the National PTA and the California State PTA are:

  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community and place of worship;

  • To raise the standards of home life;

  • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth;

  • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth;

  • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantage in physical, mental, social and spiritual education.
