    PTSA Announcements


    Statement from the RHS PTSA

    You may have recently read the KUOW article about equity in PTSA funding schools. The article has many inaccuracies about what the Roosevelt PTSA funds, and the amount of revenue we raise. We have responded to KUOW, and hope we can clear up the misconceptions and create a dialogue with them.

    Roosevelt PTSA is interested in joining the discussion around equity in the Seattle PTSA organizations. we are planning a PTSA board meeting in February to be centered around this issue. We hope parents will come and participate in the discussion.
