The SFT PTA collects annual membership dues which includes portions payable to the national and state PTA. The SFT PTA officers include a president, three vice presidents, a secretary and treasurer. Officers are elected at the annual general membership meeting. There are four general membership meetings held each year. Meeting dates are published at the beginning of the school year and distributed to every family. A quorum must be present at a meeting for any business requiring a vote. The PTA operates through standing and special committees.
