Parent- Teacher Association (PTA) 
The mission of PTA organizations across the nation, which Rowland Elementary embraces, is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  The national PTA has been in existence for over 100 years and was founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McClellan Birney and Phoebe A. Hearst.  Today's PTA, of course, is a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the education of our children and the promotion of family engagement in schools (https://www.pta.org/home/About-National-Parent-Teacher-Association/Mission-Values/National-PTA-History).  With this in mind, please get involved, and join the Rowland Elementary PTA today!
Rowland Elementary's PTA Officers: 
President:  Jann Brown
Vice-President:  Yvonne Holmes

Title I

Title I, Part A is a federal program that provides financial assistance to local school systems and schools to support the academic achievement of disadvantaged students. The DeKalb County School District receives Title I funds which are distributed to schools within their districts so the schools can provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help children master challenging curricula and meet state standards in core academic subjects. Title I funds support extra instruction in reading and mathematics, additional teachers, materials of instruction, as well as after-school and summer programs to extend and reinforce the regular school curriculum.
