PT Council

PT Council, known formally as the Scarsdale Council of Parent-Teacher Associations, is the umbrella organization for the Scarsdale PTA units that exist at each of the seven Scarsdale Public Schools.  It is a separate entity with its own elected officers and committees.  The membership is drawn from teachers, parents and administrators from each school.  The President from each individual PTA unit serves as a member of the PT Council Executive Committee and acts as a liaison between the PT Council and the respective PTA unit.

PT Council sponsors a variety of speakers, panels and programs which enrich the student and parent community.  During the school year, the PT Council Executive Committee meets monthly with the Scarsdale Schools Superintendent as well as sends representatives to Scarsdale Board of Education meetings and budget discussions.
