What is the San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs? 

The San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs is the next organizational level of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) beyond the school site or unit level. Our council represents all 33 school PTAs and PTSAs in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. Four of our middle schools and all of our high school organizations include students, which is why they are Parent Teacher Student Associations (PTSAs)

Council meetings are generally held on the second Wednesday of each month and are attended by the presidents, executive VP or other delegates from all 33 PTA units and the council executive board, which includes Superintendent Mary Shelton. These meetings are held in the Board Room at the SRVUSD Education Center (or district offices), 699 Old Orchard Dr., Danville, 94526.

What does the Council do?  We provide educational opportunities for parent, educators and community members, legislative information and events, training for PTA officers, communication to and from school district administrators, and coordination of a variety of programs for the school sites. We also award scholarships to one graduating student from each of the district high schools.

San Ramon Valley Council is a member of the 32nd District PTA, which is the Contra Costa County-level PTA organization, as well as California State PTA and the National PTA.

Join any of our Mailing Lists or Unit Mailing Lists by clicking on the blue "Join Email List" button on the left side of this webpage and follow the instructions that follow.  You may also use this button to change your current list subscriptions.  

Membership:  Membership in PTA comes through membership in school unit PTAs.  $1 of the unit dues is passed along as council dues and funds our programs.  Most of our events and programs are free, although a fee is charged for a few events to allow them to break even.  We encourage all parents, educators, and community members to join PTA.  If you are no longer associated with a particular school and would like to join PTA, please see the "Our PTA & PTSA Units" page and contact one of the units about membership.
