The goal of the Miami-Dade County Council PTA/PTSA is to keep parents informed about state and local proposed legislation and current policy relative to the education, safety, and well-being of Florida’s children.
In the context of PTA, advocacy is supporting and speaking up for children – in schools, in communities, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
The Miami-Dade County Council is a local unit of the Florida PTA Advocacy Group. Learn more about legislation that the PTA supported or opposed by reading their 2023 Wrap-up brochure. The brochure also includes helpful FAQs and information on how to stay informed of new legislation and get involved.
To see how our Florida State Legislators voted on 2023 legislation, you can review the voter card below. We will update this page periodically with new legislation to be mindful of based on the Florida PTA's legislative priorities. Learn more about these priorities by clicking here.
