PTO Officer Working Meetings:
The purpose of the The Village Charter School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) shall be to facilitate and carry out projects that support the TVCS Charter and promote open communication and collaboration between the parents, teachers, Administration and the TVCS Board of Trustees (Board). By providing an avenue for parent participation, the PTO shall help to strengthen the school community and help create supportive programs and events that shall further the goals of the Board, Administration and parents. The primary areas of responsibility for the PTO include school support of faculty and administration, volunteer coordination, and community building for TVCS through events and programs.
The PTO works under and with the Board of Trustees and the Administration to ensure that the needs of the students, staff, and parents are met. The board recognizes a single official PTO which reports to the Board as a committee. The PTO shall not seek to direct the administrative activities of the school nor control administrative policies, but shall be solicited for recommendations by the Board or Administration.
