Question: Principal's role in the PTO

How active should the principla be in the decision making of the PTO? Like should he/she "move" to put someone on the board? Really drive the direction of the PTO?

there are pros and cons to having a principal on the the pto, ours is my vice president... the PTO needs to be "run" by its officers however. If your principal has ideas I suggest that you listen to them and discuss how much of it to be implilmented by the board (ours does come up with good ideas most of the time). As far as putting someone on the board I would say NO, board positions are voted on in our group- if she is just suggesting someone to nominate then thats ok.
