In short the function of the PTSA at Central is to serve as a support for the staff and teachers through funding of special requests and needs not met in other ways,. PTSA is also a liaison between the administration and other parents, students, and teachers; mainly, they are a conduit of communication. PTSA membership consists of parents, teachers, and students and their work is on a volunteer basis. PTSA solicits volunteers for projects and events when they are needed, an example would be the dance chaperones. While there are PTA groups at most of the schools in CU, only the high schools have the students involved. It is strictly PTA at the elementary level.
