Is there a list of formal rules and regulations for running an independent PTO? Our principle has demanded that all proposals from teachers must be made first month of year and that NOTHING would be considered after that. He says this is the PTO's rules. This is his first year as principle and our PTO has only been around for 2 years. I think we should look at any proposals that come in mid-year and vote on them, with our budget in mind. Don't we as a PTO make this decision? Should it be in our By-Laws?
