PTO Exploration and Survey
The Crocker/Riverside Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is currently exploring the option of a transition to a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). In an effort to provide our community with information on what a PTO is and how the two types of organizations compare, please review the following documents:
PTA and Non-PTA Parent Groups Comparison (this document is provided by California State PTA)
PTO vs PTA Differences (this document is provided by PTO Today, an organization that supports PTO parent groups)
After you have reviewed these documents, please take a moment to complete our survey question, which is meant to help our current PTA board gauge members’ interest in pursuing the PTO option. This survey is not a vote to disband the PTA, but simply a way for us to better understand what our current membership thinks of the possibility of the conversion.
You may access the survey at:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KHCZ9CB

SCUSD GATE Office Seeks Family Feedback with Online Survey
SCUSD’s Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Office invites all parents and guardians of GATE-identified students to participate in an end-of-year survey. Feedback will inform district goals and parent education efforts for the upcoming school year, and will help SCUSD better meet the needs of GATE students throughout the district. Please take the time to complete this important survey. Crocker /Riverside had (by far) the most responses of any other K-6 school last year. We would like to repeat that response rate in hope that it makes a difference toward improving GATE services in our district and at our campus. The survey can be located on the district GATE homepage. The survey will be open through June 19th and is available in all major languages. Hard copies of the survey are also available in all major languages at schools and at the GATE Office.
