The West Virginia PTA is continuing our campaign to include families of diversity including children with special needs, into the PTA. The Board of Managers adopted a proposal to pay state and national dues for two memberships per school for diverse families. We are hoping that each local unit will waive their dues portion so we can begin a journey of being more inclusive to these families!
Each local unit may decide how to choose the two memberships. Once they have been selected, please include their names and contact information with your monthly membership dues submission for that month, so that we can send them valuable resources. Use the Diversity “Free Membership” form to provide this information to the state. Please support the inclusion of a diverse family in your local unit and promote this offer. Diversity can mean a wide range of descriptions including special needs and disabilities, race, ethnicity, language, religion, and even grandparents and foster parents!
