Every PTA abides by Bylaws (given by the Texas PTA with very few parts that can be changed by the local PTA) and Standing Rules (adopted by the local PTA) to help it govern appropriately. They help protect the students, school, PTA, and individuals volunteering in the PTA.
Every three years we are required to review these rules and make necessary changes, if any. Bylaws and standing rules may be altered more often if needed. After we vote on the proposed changes, Texas PTA will review them and make sure they are appropriate.
