I'm guessing that the account was opened under the schools EIN (Employer Identification Number). If that's the case, the bank probably considers the account as legally belonging to the school rather than the PTO. Check with the bank to see which EIN was used. If the PTO's own EIN is on the account, you should have rights to do what you wish with the account.
