Welcome to the NYS PTA Resource Guide!

The NYS PTA Resource Guide provides guidance, instruction and ideas to ensure a successful term as a PTA officer or leader. You will discover valuable information to assist your PTA/PTSA with the important work that you do on behalf of all children and families.

Our online Resource Guide includes all of the information and chapters in an easier format for quick access. Click on the drop-down menus to find key topics, use the search tool, or view the more detailed table of contents for each section to quickly find the information you are interested in. You can also download and print individual pages, sections, chapters or the entire Toolkit.

The Resource Guide reflects the hard work and effort of the NYS PTA Board of Directors to create the best possible resource for you. It is based on more than 100 years of best practices by PTAs around our state. Many of your questions and concerns can be answered here in just one place. Remember, if you can’t find it in the Resource Guide, you always have the safety net of your council, region or state PTA to answer your questions. Don’t hesitate to contact them.

Your input regarding your PTA needs is invaluable, and your help is necessary in continuing to make all PTA materials are useful and pertinent. Please contact us at pta.office@nyspta.org with ideas, suggestions and comments to help make the NYS PTA Resource Guide as useful as possible for you.

We believe in you and the work that we do, we are in this together.
