By-Laws & Policies

By-Laws

Our By-Laws are the governing rules for our organization. The by-laws dictate membership, responsibilities, voting requirements, and other fundamentals of how our Parent-Teacher Organization is run. The rules listed here are binding (unless permanently amended in a formal vote).

This document is important if only because it ultimately governs how we can spend the funds we raise (through votes at monthly meetings) and how parents can participate in our organization.

Policies

Our Policies document less formally describes specific ways we have traditionally supported the school. The policies listed here are not binding, and depend entirely on our ability to execute them with both funding and volunteer time.

This document is primarily a way to communicate to future PTO leadership what support the school would like from us. As new parents arrive and experienced parents depart, our policies serve as a foundation for deciding what initiatives should be prioritized each year.
