Janney’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) designs, solicits funds for, and implements a wide range of programs that complement and enhance the educational and other programs offered by District of Columbia Public Schools. Its priorities are determined by input from Janney’s parents, teachers and staff.
The Janney PTA accomplishes these things through 40+ volunteer committees that organize efforts in arts education, school communication, community outreach, instructional support, facilities and grounds maintenance, and fundraising.
The Janney PTA Executive Board leads and coordinates PTA programs. The board consists of three presidents, two past presidents, two vice presidents, three treasurers, two secretaries, the Janney principal and vice principal, and two Janney staff members. This board is elected by the general PTA membership.
The Executive Board meets once a month in the evening from September through June. All members of the Janney community are encouraged to join and attend the community meetings which are held twice a year.
