Well, Crystal, at our now 4 year old school a group of parents, the Principal and the school's board (not district) wrote the beginning of our By-Laws. No membership was included and it did take the first year of school+ to write them BUT we have 'em. Don't forget "mamma" to use this site as a resource! I have for some additions we have made to our standing "laws". Also refering to Roberts Rules in your "laws" and to for inspiration will help. I moved here when the PTO was on it's 2nd year (missed all the 'fun') but I've been told many of the faces in the crowd are the original members! WOW!
May the force be with you!

I would have to say that first your board of officers should write your basic outline for this, then present it to your membership...after all the changes are made and you have a final copy submit it to the school is not and should not be a school board's job to write by-laws for a parent would also take more than just one meeting to accomplish it...good luck:)

In starting up a new parent organization who is responsible for making the by-laws and setting up the structure of the group? Our school director has sent it to the School Board (very small, private school) to do this but as of yet they have not, they have not had time to do it at their last several meetings. I kind of thought it should be those involved in the pto, the board can give their approval but is it their place to make these decisions????????
