One of the biggest factors in student success is an engaged and supportive family, school, and community environment. Texas PTA's Connect programs help educate and empower school communities through videos presentations from subject matter experts, handouts, and materials about the most pressing issues facing our kids. 

Current PTA members can choose from a dozen Connect programs to download with everything needed to host a family engagement night, webinar, or PTA meeting about issues like mental wellness, vaping, financial literacy, and school safety.

All Connect programs come with a one-page guide, including tips on how to facilitate the meeting, suggested discussion questions, and optional activities. And most materials are available in English and Spanish.

PTA leaders are encouraged to invite the principal, assistant principal, school counselor, and/or school nurse to attend and participate as applicable. They can add information about district or campus programs and resources and help answer questions parents might have.
