Hi Michele -

You can definitely call yourself a PTO, use this site, and take advantage of the insurance.

Only thing that's strictly K-8 for us is the groups that automatically get our print magazine (all K-8s in US). Other than that, everything is transferable/useable for high schools.

Good luck,

Tim

Hi L --

Good place to start is our PTO v PTA summary page here:

www.ptotoday.com/ptovpta.html

And this message board area has tons of past discussions from groups going through the change. If you have more questions, come back or email.

Best,

Tim

I'm the PTA Treasurer for our elementary school. We're very interested in becoming a PTO...but...have NO idea where to begin. Can some one tell me what steps we would take to become a PTO? Please include cost factors, as well, if you can.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
