ANSWER: Yes, a PTA can be involved in a bond or levy campaign if they follow specific guidelines. Please follow these links to information on the Washington State PTA website for PTA procedures in endorsing a levy election:
· PTA -- Taking Positions on Ballot Measures: School Bonds, Levies, Initiatives and Referenda
· Guidelines for School Districts in Election Campaigns
In addition, as individual community members our members may also want to get involved by donating their time, talent or monetary resources to the local levy committee. The local levy committee is made up of a group of citizens from the community running a campaign to approve the levy. This is a great civic exercise and a wonderful local advocacy effort on behalf of children.
