Urban Family Engagement Network
The National PTA Urban Family Engagement Network is now accepting applications for new urban areas. The funding is $20,000 for 30 months and is designed to ensure that more families in urban areas understand the role they can play in their children’s education, the opportunities to participate in school events, the ways to navigate the school system and collaborate with schools personnel to solve problems, and the value of joining other families in organized, parent-focused group settings.
One of the key PTA values is inclusivity. We value and seek input from as wide a spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible. With communities all across the nation growing more diverse, the concepts of inclusion and diversity become even more relevant and important to Oklahoma PTA's mission.
PTA speaks on behalf of all children. As a parent, you can promote this mission by embracing diversity and inclusion and promoting these values in the school system. Use these resources to aid in your own mission for diversity
