PTA Structure: From Washington to YOU!
Branches of the National PTA have been established in all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, and in schools for American dependents in Europe and the Pacific area.
CAPTA: The California State PTA (California Congress of Parents, Teachers, and Students, Inc.) is a branch of the National PTA, serving as a connecting link between the national organization and its membership within the state.
12th District: District PTAs are geographical divisions of the California State PTA, established to carry out its programs. All PTA districts organized after July 1, 1980, are required to have number designations. Our 12the District stretches north to Ventura and South to Calabassas and Oak Park.
Camarillo Council: Councils of PTAs/PTSAs are created by the California State PTA for the purpose of conference, leadership training, and coordination of efforts of the member units. Our Council includes Camarillo High School PTSA.
La Mariposa PTA: Unit PTAs are organized and chartered in conformity with rules and regulations as prescribed in the bylaws of the California State PTA. These units are self-governing bodies for the purpose of planning programs and activities to meet local community needs. However, they are required to observe policies of the California State PTA and/or National PTA.
La Mariposa PTA is a Unit PTA Organization reporting to the Camarillo PTA Council under the 12th District PTA for the State of California.
