This information was originally posted on November 17, 2008. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

At the November 11, 2008, Central School PTA/O meeting the membership voted to dissolve the Central PTA. Central School will now operate as a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) as voted and approved by the general membership in May 2008.

As part of the continued transition to a PTO, the current 08/09 Executive Committee reviewed the officer roles and responsibilities and presented a proposal, at the 11/11/08 meeting, that included minor changes to the future 09/10 officer positions. A brief recap of the potential changes:

  • The officer positions will be reduced from 9 to 8
  • The President, 1st VP’s, Treasurer, Recording Secretary and Parliamentarian remain unchanged
  • The 2nd VP of Fundraising would also cover Philanthropy
  • The Corresponding Secretary role changed to 3rd VP of Member Services

Please download and review the proposal and next steps (PDF or Excel format) as shared at the 11/11/08 meeting.

The proposal will be presented again at the January 13, 2009 meeting for membership approval.
