Building Websites


Websites can be an effective tool to keep your community up to date on the latest information and resources for your PTA.


A website is a useful tool for promoting and providing resources. It is usually the first point of contact for persons interested in finding out more about your PTA. Please follow these basic concepts.

  • Plan the design and content of the website strategically. Simplicity is the key to user-friendly design.

  • Budget for website development and maintenance. Websites may be hosted by SFUSD, or by a service provider paid for by the PTA.

  • Do not post PTA bylaws, minutes and financial reports on the website except in summary form.

  • Update your website content regularly. Forward approved copy to the website manager with requested posting dates and removal dates.

  • Link to information on the California State PTA, National PTA websites, council and district websites.

  • Permission should be obtained prior to posting any name, photograph, or contact information on a website. Observe copyright laws. Use a Photography Release form, available in English and Spanish.
