Spring testing is right around the corner. We are in need of proctors to help make everything go smoothly and would appreciate your help. Please click the LINK below to view the opportunities available. Contact Marisa Leonard, PVHS testing coordinator, with any questions.
Join us at Trasca Eatery, May 3, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., for our last PTO general meeting of the year. During a brief business meeting, you’ll be able to vote on the 2019-2020 Executive Board and Executive Committee, next year’s budget, and one bylaw amendment. Please see below for more information about the meeting proposals.
Afterward, Heather Quick, owner of Florida Women’s Law Group, will offer a program, “The Legal Side of 18.” Whether your child is turning 15 or 18, this program promises to give you the information you need to help transition your young adult.
A parent’s worst nightmare is getting that phone call in the middle of the night that your child has been in a serious accident. If they are away at school, you can only call the hospital to find out what is going on and the nurse tells you that she cannot disclose any information due to HIPPA regulations because your child is legally an adult. The harsh reality is, this will happen to you if the proper documentation is not in place. The authority to communicate on your adult child’s behalf will help make a terrifying situation a little less stressful.
Heather Quick will lead this informative discussion regarding the necessity of certain legal documents you need to access medical records, attendance records and transcripts once your child turns 18. Stay connected to your college student and put your mind at ease before your child starts this new chapter in his/her life.
Proposed Bylaw Amendment
Article IX, Section 2: The duties of the Executive Board shall be:
- To approve and submit to the PTO for approval a budget for the fiscal year, which shall be prepared by the executive committee. This budget shall be submitted to the general membership of the PTO for approval at the first general PTO meeting of the fiscal year.
Article IX, Section 2f:
To approve and submit to the PTO for approval a budget for the following fiscal year, which shall be prepared by the Executive Board. This budget shall be submitted to the general membership of the PTO for approval no later than May of the current fiscal year. The Executive Board may amend an approved budget during the current fiscal year.
From “executive committee” to “Executive Board”- correct typo as indicated by the title of Section 2.
The purpose of changing the timing of the budget is to reflect current practices at 501c(3) organizations. Organizations approve budgets prior to the next fiscal year to ensure continuous function of the organization. Additionally, the budget may need adjusted in the current fiscal year due to revenue and expense changes.
