16th District PTA

  • PTA logo

    Our mission is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all students. Key values include collaboration, commitment, accountability, respect, inclusivity, and integrity. PTA/PTSA chapters in Fayette County Public Schools are part of the 16th District PTA in Kentucky.
    Note: PTA, a 501c(3) organization, is not part of FCPS.

    Districtwide initiatives 

    Superintendent's Roundtable: Families and PTA members from across Lexington gather several times a year in an open forum to talk with the superintendent and other FCPS leaders about common issues in schools. We meet at 9:30 a.m. in Conference Room 150 of the John D. Price Administration Building, 450 Park Place, unless otherwise noted. Please refer to our Facebook page for the latest updates.

    • 2022-23 schedule: TBA

    "Reflections" art competition: The PTA Reflections program challenges students to create art inspired by a common theme. Categories include photography, dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, and visual art. Ask your student's art teacher about details and deadlines. For general questions, email the Reflections coordinator.

    Spring awards luncheon: The 16th District PTA's annual recognition luncheon in May celebrates active school chapters, outstanding leaders, and senior scholars. Also, new officers are installed every two years.

    Grant opportunities

    Throughout the year, National PTA offers awards or grants as chapters engage families, support student success, improve health and safety, increase access to arts education, and celebrate advocacy and diversity.

    Did you know?

    PTA was founded in 1897 to right wrongs done to children. It went on to advocate for child labor laws, the establishment of the juvenile justice system, hot lunches in schools, and much more. In Kentucky, parents are represented on the SBDM councils at every school because of KY PTA. The 16th District members advocate locally and beyond.
