Normally the PTO handles that and the principal doesn't get involved. Bylaws are about how you organize and run your group -- who the officers are, when you hold elections, etc. The principal's concern is more how you interact with the school, which isn't a topic typically covered in bylaws. A standard procedure for amending bylaws is to appoint a committee to write the amendment, have them report back, and at the next meeting vote on the proposed amendment. Typically you need a two-thirds vote to approve a bylaws change.
