| There are many committees and persons involved in Parent - Teacher Associations (PTAs). PTA Presidents are representative of and responsible for the PTAs, and are usually elected from among studentsf parents. PTA Vice presidents are elected from teachers, and in many cases, from vice- principals. PTA Vice presidents also may be composed of two people: one is a teacher, the other is a parent. The PTA vice presidents assist the presidents. PTAs are divided into committees such as workshop, publicity and accounting committees. Committees for each grade and class are also formed in the associations and function as individual PTAs for grades or classes.
