What is NRECHPTA?

The NRECHPTA is affiliated with the National PTA and Ohio PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and is centered on parents with children age birth to 6 years (and expectant parents too!). We are not affiliated with a specific school or religion. This PTA is for parents and care givers who reside in the city of North Ridgeville and surrounding areas.

Mission of the PTA:

To support and speak on behalf of the children and youth in the schools, community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
