Bus Stop IconBus Stop IconBus Stop Icon

  1. Welcoming All Students - Families are active participants in the life of the school, and should feel welcomed, valued, and connected to each other, to school staff, and to what students are learning and doing in class within an inclusive environment.    
  2. Communicating Effectively - Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.
  3. Supporting Student Success - Families and school staff continuously collaborate to support students’ learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do so effectively.
  4. Speaking Up for Every Child - Families are empowered to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success. 
  5. Sharing Power - Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.
  6. Collaborating with Community - Families and school staff collaborate with community members to connect students, families, and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.

Convention Leadership Training (CLT) brings PTA leaders and members together to conduct official business such as consideration of amendments to Bylaws and Resolutions.  You will receive training at workshops, make friends and network, all while connecting to resources, exhibitors and companies who can help you with everything from fund raising to creating fun for your school.  Become a PTA Advocate, get Parents Engaged and bring those great ideas back to your school to have a successful year.

Dr. Eric Thomas will deliver the keynote address at CLT on 
Saturday during the luncheon. Dr. Thomas is Georgia's new
Chief Turnaround Officer and emphasized "parent engagement"
as one of the key components to school success, along with 
qualified teachers and administrators. Dr. Thomas works with 
the state school districts and with the state D.O.E. to devise  
tailored turnaround plans for schools selected for intervention. 
A Savannah native, Dr. Thomas is known as an expert across 
the country and for his collaborative demeanor.

Who Should Attend CLT 2018?

Convention Leadership Training is an investment in the future leadership and success of your PTA.

We recognize that time and money are scarce, but we must invest in our leaders to develop our potential in order that PTA can ensure a better future for all children.
