Grants to this Grantee
for support of the SMARTS: Parents for the Arts Network program  
With nearly one million members, the California State PTA is the state’s largest volunteer organization, working to promote the education and well-being of all children. The organization’s School Smarts Parent Engagement Program strives to mobilize parents as champions for the arts. Implemented in 400 schools, School Smarts parents develop the knowledge and skills to successfully advocate for change at the school, community, district, county, and state levels, and to take advantage of the state’s Local Control Funding Formula, which provides parents with greater input into school decision making and budgeting processes. Renewed funding will support expansion of the School Smarts program and help the California State PTA build its alumni network.
