Dues (Scroll down for addresses and "Funding")

     Our Minimum membership dues are $3.75/member per school year: $2.25 for nationals, $1.25 for state and $.25 for district and are due the 15th of every month as new members join.  Local units add their dues on top of that sum.  Most units' dues are between $4.00-6.00 total, as they determine necessary.  Individuals paying dues to a local unit are automatically state and national PTA/PTSA members!  Many powerful resources and opportunities are available to you and your school as a result.

     In order for a unit to be in "good standing", the unit must send its first dues payment in by October 15.  For now, units are to send dues directly to the state PTA office who will forward the appropriate dues onward.  Example:  If your unit sets its dues as $5.00/member, it keeps $1.25 and sends $3.75 to the state.  The state office keeps $1.25 and sends $2.25 to the national office on the 15th.  The state  sends $.25 to district 26 or holds it for our use.  Note, anyone can become a PTA member!

     Please make checks payable to "Kentucky PTA" and mail it to the address below. Download dues form here.  To better understand "Where your dues go?", click here.  Also, click here for Sample Membership Form.  Click here for officer information.

Good Standing

     To be in "good standing", a Kentucky PTA/PTSA unit should have its:

  • First payment of District, State and National dues paid by October 15th to the state.
  • Bylaws updated every five years.  (Scroll down for state, national bylaws & parliamentary procedure tips.)
  • Financial reports must also be filed with our district and state by August 15. 
  • When these three basic criteria are met, a unit is considered to be in "good standing'.  This is required for a unit to participate in awards programs such as Reflections, Self-Esteem Essay Contest and more.
  • Note to remain in good standing, E990 cards must be file with IRS by Nov. 15.
  • Note, also Insurance is now required by the Kentucky Dept. of Education (KDE).  See the Redbook for more Accounting details.
     Also, make sure your new officers report is sent to our district or emailed to bdrumartin@hotmail.com or enter online here.

House Bill 406, as approved by the House and Senate on April 2, has now been signed into law.  Considering the recent
high inflation rate and growing enrollments, Kentucky’s state school funding will have less buying power to meet each
child’s needs in the 2007-08 school year than in 2008-09.  This analysis shares an estimate of the impact per student. Click here for document.
