Local PTA/PTSA Bylaws Approval Process
Bylaws determine the structure and provide specific regulations by which its affairs are governed and officers are elected. The bylaws define or explain the rules under which the PTA functions. They protect the group from error and guide it to efficient service. Approved bylaws must be on file in the Kentucky PTA office to maintain a “unit in good standing” status. All established PTAs and PTSAs must renew their bylaws every five years to remain a “unit in good standing.”
The bylaws should be submitted to Kentucky PTA for approval prior to the renewal (expiration) date.
The local PTA/PTSA bylaws form should be completed using the information that was approved by your general membership.
Below are the three types of bylaws submissions available; all use the same bylaws form.
