To ensure the viability of these organizations, the Board requires that all such organizations maintain legal status as required by federal and state law.
Three options are available to these organizations:
- The organization may choose District Agency Fund status,
- The organization may choose to incorporate and seek recognition as a Section 501)(c)(3) non-profit corporation; or
- The organization may choose to become affiliated with the Colorado and National Parent Teacher Associations and acquire Section 501(c)(3) status through their affiliation with the Associations.
The organization may choose the status which best fits the needs of their organization and school community.
