WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: When the District PTA takes a support position on ballot measures, all PTA units are now permitted to actively support the measure as an organization. If you present information about the measure to your PTA members at a school site, by law the information must be factual in nature, without intent to influence. However, if you present to members off school district property, including through PTA-run listservs, websites, or on the public sidewalk, you may use language that is more persuasive in nature. For guidance on local advocacy, visit http://www.capta.org/sections/advocacy/local-advocacy.cfm.
