Leadership Resources / Video Training


A big part of why PTA matters is because we have a safety net of human resources. If a PTA/PTSA needs help, training, or other assistance and is part of a council, contact the council leadership for additional help (click here ninthdistrictpta.org/pta-general-information/units-councils/ to find the appropriate council). If the PTA/PTSA is an out of council association or you are unsure if you are in or out of council, contact Ninth District PTA (858) 268-8077 or office@ninthdistrictpta.org.
