1. What is PTSA?

PTSA stands for Parent Teacher Student Association. PTSA is a volunteer association where parents, educators, students, and other citizens can be active in their schools and communities.

2. What does it mean "to join PTSA"?

We ask parents for a $10.00 ( Invidual), $5 ( Student) or $25 ( Family) membership price. From this, an amount goes to the District and National PTA, so Ygnacio Valley High School only keeps part of the donation. This is why the PTSA relies mostly on fundraising, membership or donations to help support the school.

We use that money to:

  •    Provide scholarships to our Senior students
  •    Provide scholarship for student field trips.
  •   Provide teachers with monetary support all related to school activities or programs
  • Teacher Appreciation Week

3. How do we know that PTSA money is really being used for our children?

Any parent is welcome to participate in any PTA event. Our records are not confidential and we would be glad to explain PTSA money distribution to anyone.

4. Can anyone volunteer and help at school?

Yes. We welcome anyone who can assist us!

5. Do PTSA members get paid when working at the schools?

No. PTSA members volunteer their time, and we welcome anyone who is willing to assist them. Our parents work very hard to fundraise for special programs at Ygnacio Valley High School.

6. Can anyone become a member?

Yes. Anyone, including students, can be a PTSA member.

7. Do we have to volunteer in the school to be a member?

No. You are NOT REQUIRED to volunteer any time for our events and/or fundraising. We appreciate your assistance, but you are absolutely NOT required to do so.

8. How do I become a member?

You can fill out an enrollment envelope attached to the first day packet, or pick a form up at the office and return it to the school office.
