At Butler the PTO supports the school by providing items the District budget can't/won't; such as technology (active boards, projectors, computer lab...). It doesn't/hasn't gone to the School Board as a PTO about any issues. The PTO usually goes to Mrs. Smith who will take our concerns to the proper people. There have been one or 2 rogue parents who have gone to the Board regarding issues, however those parents have not been asked by PTO to do so. As far as I know Butler PTO doesn't have anyone that is on the PTO exec board that is part of the SIT. If there are parents from the school that are involved they do not report back to the PTO. Maybe Butler PTO needs to revamp a little - as they are doing already - but add some type of "School Enhancement Team". This team would be responsible for getting people to the Board meetings, letting parents what's going on in the District, finding out where the school needs improvements by communicating with the SIT... lots of room for improvement everywhere... I will suggest this team to Butler PTO. As far as tomorrow's meeting - I am unable to make that too. As good as this discussion is, we need to give people more notice for meetings. Thank you for getting it set up!
