Parent & Teacher Organizations

In the service of its educational mission, District 401 seeks to build collaborative relationships with parents and members of the larger Elmwood Park community.

Our Partnerships

District 401 values the support it receives from and the relationships it has built with each parent-teacher group at its schools as well as with Band Boosters, the Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee, the EPHS Tiger Booster Club and the Elmwood Park Educational Foundation.

Please note that our parent-teacher groups consist of the following organizations:

  • John Mills Elementary School PTA

District 401 Policy Guidance

For the District policies that guide our relations with parent and community organizations, see the following sections of the Board of Education’s Policy Manual:

Please note that District 401 is not, and will not be, responsible for a parent or community organization’s business or the conduct of its members.

In addition, money that a parent or community organization gives to a District 401 school cannot be earmarked for any particular expense.

Organizations may make recommendations, but cash or other valuable consideration must be given to the district to use at its discretion.
