PTA Mission: To make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Iowa PTA advocates for children at school, in our community, and with our elected officials. Here's a list of upcoming coffees and forums where you can chat with your elected officials on a personal level. The Iowa Legislature is in session and there are several possible pieces of legislation which can affect the quality of schools for all children, no matter where they live in Iowa.

 

Please plan to attend local legislative coffees and forums (access full list HERE) to discuss your concerns:

* Of the low level of funding for public schools currently under consideration (1.5% increase, which is less than inflation for the previous year of 2.1%).

* Let them know you do not want teacher credentials weakened, teachers should continue to pass their exams to show their proficiency in their work.

* Any considerations of vouchers or removing funds from public schools to be given to private schools is not helpful for all Iowa children.

 

On a Federal level - there is a question whether or not the CHiP program (medicare program for youth) should continue as part of a long-term plan or just a short-term stopgap. For the health and well-being of all children,we must support a long-term solution.
