If Nevada families see more men around this coming school year, it may be because of the strong focus of Nevada PTA to engage men in their child’s education.

The effort began during the 2011-2012 school year and resulted in Nevada PTA receiving the National PTA MP3-Male Participation Award—a national recognition that honors a state PTA for significant strides in the recruitment and engagement of men in education.

Nevada PTA received a certificate of recognition, a check for $500 and was presented the award at the 116th Annual National PTA Convention and Exhibition in San Jose in June.

“As family structures are changing, more men are getting involved in their child’s education. We commend Nevada PTA for their efforts because research shows that student success increases when both parents are involved in their education. We look forward to continued success from Nevada and across the country,” said National PTA President Betsy Landers.
