A message from Ninth District PTA President, Colleen Hervey

Welcome to Ninth District PTA, serving the children and families in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

As we navigate distance learning and new state health requirements, PTAs can continue to be the bridge for communication between school sites and parents. Now is the time to strengthen and nurture relationships with your principal, teachers and superintendents. Find your school and/or school district information here: school finder tool
