Foothill High School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is set to vote tonight whether to become an official Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).
Foothill's PTO is currently independent. If members vote to become a PTA, the organization would become an affiliate of the national PTA - a formal membership organization.
Schools that choose to become a PTA must pay dues to state and nationals organization, as well as follow state and national group rules.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. in room C-6 at Foothill High School, 4375 Foothill Road.
The public is invited to attend, however, only PTO members can vote on action items.
According to Pleasanton schools superintendent Parvin Ahmadi, the only schools not associated with the national PTA are Lydiksen Elementary, Pleasanton Middle and Foothill High schools.
