"Kansas PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and does not endorse any candidate seeking elected office."
Individuals, including employers, officers, and directors of nonprofits may engage in political campaign activities as private citizens, on their own time, and using their own facilities and resources. Furthermore, individuals may endorse candidates and send out election information, as long as they do not use their official PTA title or position, do not mention PTA in their information or use a PTA website to do so. If there is a possibility that the aforementioned activities may be associated with the PTA, disclaimers or other statements may be necessary.
As a 501(c)3 association, we adhere to the guidelines set forth for our association. Individuals have every right to support and campaign for candidates of their choice. Voting records of candidates are a matter of public record and can be easily accessed by visiting the State of Kansas website.
As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.
PTA was created to meet a profound challenge: to better the lives of children. And today, it continues to flourish because PTA has never lost sight of its goal: to change the lives of children across our great nation for the better.
PTA does not act alone. Working in cooperation with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the national PTA organization collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.
Kansas PTA was founded in 1914 and has been working since that date for a quality education and the health, safety and well being of each and every child in Kansas. We encourage dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and community members to join us in our work for all children. Our current issues are to support the Common Core Standards Initiative, programs including - Million Hours of Power, Three for Me, MORE, Healthy Lifestyles, Family Engagement in Education and incorporating the PTA National Standards into Kansas education. We invite you to become a member of Kansas PTA and to become a part of our advocacy efforts for each and every child!
