It is the PTA's job to stand up and speak for all children, it is your job to advocate for your child. One of the easiest ways to do this is to vote. Another one is to contact your elected representatives and let them know how you feel about the issues that affect your children, schools, and community. The Chattahoochee PTSA Legislative Chair for 2019-20 is OPEN.
Our community needs to be aware of what is happening under the Gold Dome! This is an ideal position for the parent who says, “I’d like to be more involved but cannot get into the school because…insert reason here.” The legislative chair can fulfill the duties of this position entirely on-line and on their own time at home.
The basic duties of the legislative chair is to monitor school board meetings (agendas are online and meetings are available online either live or as recordings), sign up for and read Georgia PTA’s news during the Georgia General Assembly’s legislative sessions (usually mid-January through late-March), and sign up for the National PTA’s “Take Action Network” and pass on relevant information from all three (local, state and national) to your local unit. Easy! It’s time to voluntell (a bit of volunteer and a bit of telling) someone to fill this role.
