OPERATIONS
 

PTA Executive Board
All executive board members are elected volunteers.  The board meets monthly and oversees the PTA programs and fundraisers.  Board members research and prepare recommendations for the General Membership to vote on.  Elected board positions may be served no more than two consecutive years in the same position.  All meetings are open to the general membership.


Leadership Luncheon
The Ashley Falls PTA is made up entirely of volunteers and is funded entirely by donations.  The Leadership Luncheon is the PTA’s opportunity to publicly thank those dedicated individuals who have chaired committees, worked on two or more committees, have volunteered in excess of 20 hours, or are key donors.  Incoming board members and committee chairs are introduced, thanked and begged to do it all again next year.


PTA General Membership Meetings
There are four General Membership meetings.  Activities of the Executive Board and its committees are presented and the members vote to approve budget and program proposals.  General Membership meetings are also used to host programs of interest to the members such as guest speakers, introduction of new site programs, meetings with district personnel, or recitals by the Ashley Falls choir and band.  


North Coastal County PTA (NCCPTA) President’s Meeting
The Ashley Falls PTA is part of North Coastal Council PTA, which includes the five north coastal school districts of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach and San Dieguito High School. There are 31 PTA units (schools) in this council.  The NCCPTA provides ongoing training, service and assistance to its units through regular, bi-monthly meetings and special programs.   In addition, the NCCPTA board is responsible for chartering new units and ensuring that existing units remain in good standing with State and District PTA.   The NCCPTA holds an annual Superintendent's Forum where the public is invited to meet the 5 local superintendents and ask important questions that affect our students.   This program is coupled with an awards and unit recognition celebration.
