The involvement of parents is a key to a school's success, and parent organizations like PTA's and PTO's are among the most effective means of making parents part of the education mix. LCPS encourages participation of parent organizations and supports their partnership with schools by keeping them informed of school activities and identifying ways in which they can assist the schools they serve.
Though parents organizations are not part of the school system, their membership and activities do reflect on LCPS. For that reason, we require that parents organizations comply with specific conditions concerning organization and operation. Those rules are detailed in policy 5010.
For more information about parent organizations that support your child's school, please contact the school. Our school administrators and teachers welcome your involvement in the life of the school and your child's education.
