At the end of the 2020, we have completed the election of the 5th BIBS PTA. What makes a good PTA team? Neither parents background nor social class, particularly contribution? That' s just not enough; But what all we need is time flexibility, persistent enthusiastic, caring, contribution and sense of dedication.
In fact, all of parents are PTA members that make contributions to students, our school and community in terms of support. There are 10 members composed of PTA. The decision is always made upon their discussion and votes.
In order to achieve communication efficiency, the 5th PTA set the standard of communication procedure. It forms of the standard procedure: individual issue – discuss with in class – report to Chairman only the issues of the grades cannot be solved – the temporary & essential solution to problems provide – conclusion and feedback of the issues – summarize and report to school management team at monthly PTA meeting. The precise procedure aims to increase efficiency and reduce the cost of communication.
1. Two -way communication between families and school : The procedure aims to categorize the issues and solve problems step by step. Either problems from families or problems of school teachers will be informed and discussed.
2. Academic development: These issues pre-classified into categories of student assessment, teaching quality, curriculum structure. And all problems are going to be dealt with accordingly.
3. Safety and health of students: PTA understand that school take the priority of students' safety and health issue. If any of these happens, PTA team will report the issue to school management team according to the settled process of the communication procedure.
4. Culture construction: In school activities, PTA team will assist school teachers on providing good quality activities. PTA team dedicates to various activities with the support of every PTA members, all the parents, and permission of school. PTA team of extracurricular activities will encourage talented young parents to pool their wisdom and make concerted efforts to recommend high-quality ASA resources to the school.
