• Fort Smith Council of PTAs

    The Fort Smith Council of PTAs links local school units to the community, to the state and to the nation. It’s purpose is to build stronger and more effective PTAs, and to broaden and deepen the public understanding of home-school cooperation.

    The Fort Smith Council of PTAs provides opportunities for idea exchange, planning, study and problem solving. Leadership training through events like the School of Information is also among the top priorities. Links to the Arkansas PTA and the National PTA provide information and give parents and community members a way to explore the work and issues of the PTA.
