PTO Insurance FAQs
What Is The Difference Between A PTA and A PTO?
PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association. The PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in the United States. Today’s PTA is comprised of more than 4 million parents, teachers, grandparents, caregivers, foster parents and other caring adults who share a commitment to improving the education, health, and safety of all children. A local parent group, referred to as a Unit, is formally affiliated with its state’s PTA organization and the National PTA.
If someone is part of a PTA, they are required to pay dues to their State PTA and the National PTA and are not a stand-alone parent group.
PTO stands for Parent Teacher Organization. A PTO is any non-PTA independent parent group that is not affiliated with any national organization that oversees or requires specific bylaws to be followed or dues to be paid. There is no “National PTO” similar to National PTA and there is no official umbrella organization for PTOs.
If someone is part of a PTO, they are part of an independent parent group that is not affiliated with a national organization, they are not regulated by specific bylaws, and they may not be required to pay dues.
