Welcome to Peralta District PTA

Peralta District PTA encompasses all of Alameda County and is one of 28 PTA districts that make up the California State PTA. Peralta District PTA serves over 150 PTAs, about half of which are in the 5 PTA councils (of Alameda, Berkeley, Fremont, Pleasanton and San Lorenzo) and the other half are "out of council" PTAs in the cities of Albany, Castro Valley, Hayward, Livermore, Newark, Oakland, San Leandro, and Union City.

Change of Association Meeting Date
The association meeting scheduled for March 7th has been changed to Saturday, April 23rd. A panel on Leadership will be the focus of the meeting. This is a great pre-training opportunity for your newly-elected - or about to be elected! - officers to get a jump on understanding their PTA responsibilities. More information on the time will be forthcoming. 


Providing us with contact information for the 2015-16 officers should be done by entering information directly into PTAEZ at: www.ptaez.com

VERY IMPORTANT if you receive a letter from a governmental agency - the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Franchise Tax Board (FTB) or Attorney General’s Office (AG) - please do not call the governmental entities that sent you the letters. Provide treasurer [at] peraltadistrictpta.org with a copy of the letter asap.

These agencies specifically have asked that all help requests start with California State PTA because PTA has formed working relationships with the IRS, FTB and AG and can address your PTA-specific questions.

 Membership Envelopes: $15 for a box of 500

UNITS IN COUNCIL - please use your council remittance forms

The 2015-16 Calendar has been updated to reflect the change in dates for the spring association meeting:



Be ahead of the game - plan ahead for important dates and events! 

 Our Executive Board meetings are open to officers of the district, presidents of councils, chairmen of standing committees, the immediate past president, and all California State PTA and National PTA officers and chairmen residing in the district. Our Association meetings are open to all PTA members. Meetings are generally held at the Alameda County Office of Education at 313 West Winton Avenue in Hayward from 7:00-9:00pm. Any changes in dates or locations will be publicized in our monthly newsletter and on the web site.
