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 

PTA continues to do the work that was begun over 123 years ago. Our mission remains the same, “To positively impact the lives of all children and families.”

Unsure how to operate during these unprecedented times? Please share your concerns with us. As your Ninth District PTA leaders, we are here to help you. If there is information you need, we are available! Individual officer email contact information is here.

Together we are a strong advocacy voice for our children. Your voice matters!

Last day to complete the census is September 30, 2020!

Census results determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into California to support programs that benefit our communities such as parks, roads, schools, hospitals, health clinics, fire departments and more!  For every person uncounted in the census, we lose $20,000 over ten years for our local communities.

The results of the census also determine how many seats in Congress each state gets. All responses are kept anonymous and by law cannot be released, even to law enforcement agencies.

Completing the census is easy!
  • Online at my2020census.gov 
  • By phone 844-330-2020.
  • By mail: complete the paper questionnaire and mail it back
  • Different languages are available
