Frequently Ask Questions

We have a wonderful relationship with PTA and often work closely with school PTA boards. We like to say that RootEd focuses on getting families in the doors of schools (outward marketing) and then PTA takes over to get families plugged in and involved.  We encourage our RootEd Reps to work closely with PTA to market their events to potential future families and to connect feeder schools to one another at these events so that elementary families see the opportunities at the middle school and high school levels.  (For example, the RootEd Rep could arrange for the High School’s drumline or cheerleaders to come to PTA’s carnival.)

Go Public and RootEd have worked together closely since RootEd’s beginning. Recently, Go Public and RootEd began a grassroots campaign together in which RootEd recruits and trains school level “RootEd Reps” (typically parents) in Go Public member districts to help tell the school’s story from their perspective.
