April in Twenty-Third District PTA!


Happy April! Convention is Just Around the Corner! Will We See You There?!

Happy Wednesday, Riverside County PTA and PTSA Leaders!

We hope that you are all doing well!

With a little more than a week until the first California State PTA Convention in two years, and only two and half months until the end of term, our world is looking up! COVID-19 cases are down, students are back on campuses, and a return to normal is coming closer every day!

Transition to the board-elect is coming up fast! Check out this edition to get information on Convention, the upcoming orientation and more.

Check out information on Convention (including requesting a FREE registration) by clicking this link.

What can you do to help prepare for transition?

  • Make sure your election has occurred, and your officers-elect are registered with your Council or via MyPTEZ. Per the Toolkit ("Running Your PTA, pp.R16), elections should occur by the second week in April. If your unit or council is struggling with elections or needs support - we are here to help!

  • Remember, PTA is a business, and its officers are required by law to be on record. The following items are required for officers:

    • President*: Name, Address, Email, Phone Number
    • Treasurer*: Name, Address, Email, Phone Number
    • Secretary*: Name, Email, Phone Number
    • All other officers: Name, Email, Phone Number

    * These officers are required for an operational PTA.

  • Make sure your records are in order! Financial records, minutes, and procedure books (in whatever iteration your procedure books and past plans come in!). Don't hand over a mess; set up your board-elect for PTA success. Remember, our goal is to leave it better than we found it, so that the next group of leaders can continue our good work - making it better for children and families.

  • Reach out for help if you need it! We have phenomenal Council leaders in Riverside County, all of whom are ready and willing to help support their units in whatever ways possible. If your unit is out-of-council and needs support, reach out to us at 23rd District! We are here to help you - you have support, don't be afraid to reach out! You can reach us directly via Help@23rdDistrict.org

PTA is about making it better - someone's life is better because you're in it.

Council/Unit Annual Historian Reports are DUE - EXTENDED TO MAY 1!

It's that time again! Time to submit the Annual Historian Report.

We do what we do out of sheer love, but it's always important to illustrate the extraordinary value our work holds - and the Annual Historian Report is one of the ways we make that happen!

Just because we haven't been on campus, doesn't mean that we aren't working - every hour counts! In fact, you'll even estimate the hours you'll spend working through the end of the year! Calculate all of those hours, including your estimated hours, and include them in your report. A great way to illustrate the investment of PTA in student success is to calculate the value of those estimated hours and share both hours and dollar value with your principals and school boards!

Make sure you send those reports through channels - to your Council if in-Council, or right to us if Out-of-Council.

Reports are attached!

Send Council and OOC Unit Reports to Help@23rdDistrict.org

Bylaws Submission Processes

It's that time of year - review those bylaws, and make sure to send changes through channels!

In-council units should follow council processes with respect to preparing bylaws submissions. Out-of-Council units bylaws can approve proposed changes with the executive board, prepare a bylaws submission via the ebylaws system and submit via channels.

Please follow the process for your council, if in council, regarding submittal procedures.

We are hopeful that submitted bylaws will be returned quickly!

For incoming submittals (submitted digitally), please ensure that these steps are followed (or go to www.23rddistrict.org/bylaws):

►The saved document from e-bylaws does not have "draft" or "sample" on the cover.

►All changes are documented on a completed Bylaws Submittal Form

The complete bylaws document and all standing rules are included

►Submit via Bylaws@23rdDistrict.org

Have questions for us? Please reach out via Bylaws@23rdDistrict.org
