I have kids at 3 different schools.  Do I have to join 3 different PTAs?

We welcome all members of the PTA. PTA Memberships are NOT shared between schools. And they are not transferable.  If your child starts the year at Cabaniss, but switches schools to Thelma Jones, you will have to join Thelma Jones' PTA. In Mansfield ISD, if you have a 3rd grader, a 5th grader and an 8th grader: that's 3 different schools and 3 different PTAs.

Do the PTA's work together?

Rarely.  Each PTA is independently run as its own Non-Profit Organization .  Each PTA has its own TaxID and its own Executive Board that makes plans for its own school.
