About Us

The Clinton, Connecticut PTA was founded in 2008 to provide a voice for parents, teachers and students on educational issues and challenges.  We are passionate about the quality of Clinton’s public education system and about preparing our children to have the tools and resources necessary to enable them to succeed in this ever-changing global society.

Clinton PTA Mission Statement

The Clinton Parent-Teacher Association is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan association whose mission is to be a collective voice for Clinton Public School students, parents and teachers.

The Clinton PTA recognizes that which is working well, identifies areas of concern and provides valuable resources toward solutions. The CPTA relies on its membership to work together with the Clinton Board of Education, Administration, Friends Groups, parents, teachers, community members and organizations to enhance and improve educational opportunities for all students. In advocating for our students, parents and teachers, and empowering parents to be a voice for their children, the CPTA expects to unleash the potential of every child and foster social, emotional, mental and physical development at all levels, and to promote the continuous improvement in the quality of Clinton’s public schools.
