In order to facilitate student success within the Buffalo Public School District (BPSD) voices of all members of the community must be engaged through ongoing relationships. Thus, it is the mission of the Buffalo Parent Teacher Organization (BPTO) to initiate, support, advocate for and recognize positive projects, programs and accomplishments of the students, their families, and schools.
The BPTO is organized for the purpose of supporting the education of children in Buffalo Public Schools by fostering relationships among parents, families, administrators, all school staff (employed and volunteer), and community members.
Any parent, guardian, or other adult standing as parent for a student at a school in Buffalo may be a member and shall have voting rights. Active community stakeholders, School and District administrators and all school staff (employed or volunteer) may be members and have voting rights.
