The PTSA is proposing to amend our current by-laws regarding the number of required meetings throughout the school year. This amendment shall be posted at least thirty (30) days prior to approval. Currently, our by-laws state that meetings shall be held SEVEN (7) times during the school year. The PTSA proposes the following change to that section:
"Regular meetings of the association shall be held at least FIVE (5) times during the school year, unless otherwise provided by the association or by the executive board, FIVE (5) days' notice having been given." Article XII, Section 1
The general membership will vote on this amendment at our next meeting on email@example.com. Questions? Contact Laura Welke at
