Ridgefield Council of PTAs
The Ridgefield Council of PTAs, with 9 local-unit PTAs, is the umbrella organization for the PTAs in Ridgefield. The council serves as a liaison to the CT PTA, as well as with the school administration and the community.
For more than 100 years, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has provided support, information and resources to families focused on the health and education of children. As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, PTA reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.
Attention all parents and caregivers!

It is important to note that if the budget is not approved by voters at the upcoming referendum, the BOE budget will return to the Board of Finance for further reduction (the BOE budget will not be increased by the BOF). Once these further budget revisions are made, another referendum would be held.
It is important to be informed about decisions made by BOE and how it impacts the future of RPS. BOE website for listing of board members, current budget, upcoming agendas and packets, archived meeting minutes, video recordings of previous BOE meetings, and more.
