Parent Committees

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)


What is PRA PTO?
Platte River Academy PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is a group of parents and teachers that work together for the benefit of our school and the children being educated at PRA. We aim to foster a sense of community, belonging, and involvement within the school. At PRA the PTO also works closely with families, organizations, and community partners to raise money to benefit the school, kids, and teachers.

What is the PTO Membership?
PTO membership is an annual fee of $30.00 per family. This fee helps the PTO to offset the cost of activities that the PTO puts on such as, Muffins with Moms, Donuts with Dads, Birthday Surprises, Breakfast with Santa, Bingo Night, Movie Night etc…..

PTO meets the 2nd Monday of every month at 6:30pm in the library unless noted otherwise (see school calendar for details).

For more information contact Heidi Kruglet or you can email all the PTO members at PTO@prak8.org

School Accountability Committee (SAC)


State law requires a charter school to have a School Advisory Council [22-7-106 et. al., C.R.S.], unless waived. The School Advisory Council law, enacted before the Charter Schools Act, was designed to increase meaningful parental involvement in public schools. Charter schools have some flexibility in its implementation. Charter school governing boards may establish the School Advisory Council (SAC) as a board subcommittee to develop the School Accreditation Plan in alignment with the strategic plan. Ultimately, it is the charter school’s authorizer that determines how a school implements its School Accountability Committee.

The purpose of Platte River Academy’s School Accountability Committee (SAC) is to encourage and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be informed about and involved in the planning and evaluation of the school’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. By definition, the SAC is an advisory body, which makes recommendations to PRA’s Administration and Governing Board; final decision-making authority rests with the principal and/or the Governing Board.

SAC meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6pm in the library unless noted otherwise (see school calendar for details).
