Our Parent Teacher Partnership board just started using PTboard this summer. It’s only been a few months and already it’s been phenomenal! We aren’t using all the features yet, but volunteer sign-up has been our biggest win so far using PTboard. Our old website didn’t have a volunteer sign-up so that meant our parents had an account to be a member on our website plus another login they had to remember for a separate website when we needed volunteers. Our parents don’t need to do that anymore! We are excited to start using the payment feature as well when we need monetary donations for teacher appreciation luncheons. We are also loving the calendar. It is easy to see what events are coming up with the sidebar on the homepage. PTboard has so many features that help our PTP run more efficiently. Customer service is also top notch when I have had questions. It is a one-stop shop for all our needs and the best part? They cost so much less than what we were paying with our old website! PTboard has been a game changer for us. Thank you!

The folks at PT Board support PTA success by not only offering a stellar website with incredible functionality but also responsive, helpful, and (dare I say!!) cheerful customer service. They understand how important it is to offer strong back end support for those of us PTA volunteers for whom technology isn't our specialty. They sure saved my bacon this year by helping me re-format and upload our school's Excel files! Using PT Board's content management system has made it easy for our PTA to manage our membership, solicit online donations for our fundraisers, easily communicate with small segments of a large school group, and publish a once-onerous student directory. Thanks for all you do!
- Phyllis Jask, Oak View Elementary PTA
I'd like to just simply say that I love using PTboard for our school's parent group website. It is a one-stop-shop for all things related to our parent group. I am able to keep the parents at our school updated and utilize the website to house all of our volunteer spots, announcements/advertisements, specific details for group and graphics that make it more enticing to view the pages. We use STRIPE in partnership with our PTBoard account to provide an easy option for our parents when purchasing spirit wear or tickets for events, This is a fantastic and easy option for our school. I have thoroughly enjoyed using the site and always look forward to the ways that it is evolving.
- Dani Krieschen, Treasurer Millburn EPIC Parent Group (Wadsworth IL)
We were excited to use this online platform this year! It was recommended to us by a PTA Facebook group. It has been awesome. We love how user friendly it is and all the capabilities it has. Our favorite has been the weekly newsletters and the sign ups! Our parents have also commented they love the site and increased communications we can provide. It was also simple to set up the payment form for our spirit wear and other online sales of items! The customer service is wonderful and quick to respond when we had questions. We have decided to continue with PT Board for next year and are looking forward to it!
- Rudolph Gordon School PTA (Simpsonville, SC)
PTBoard is very easy to use! The help staff is absolutely amazing. Anytime I have a question, they get back to me very quickly with an answer. I am so happy we chose PT board for our school communication.
- Lauren, Beecher Road School (CT)
Using PTBoard is a no-brainer! So easy to use - we were up and running within minutes! No more parent complaints about not knowing where or how to find information on events or fundraisers - it's all right at your fingertips! The student directory us a big hit with our families! Any questions we had were answered by the PTBoard helpdesk quickly and efficiently. Would recommend PTBoard to any parent/teacher organization!
- Laura Mulholland, French Creek Elementary School PTA President (Pottstown PA)
We began using PTBoard at the beginning of the school year, and we set up tables at our school's Back to School Night to assist families in creating accounts. All of us were learning the system together, so there were a few bumps, but I found the customer service with PTBoard to be efficient and friendly, helping me quickly solve the few issues some families experienced. As the PTO Vice President, one of my main responsibilities was to create and send weekly e-newsletters to our students' families. PTBoard's announcements function was perfect for this purpose, easy to format and personalize, and just as simple to set to be emailed. I especially like the ease of uploading your own images, so I was able to make the newsletter look engaging and specific to our school. The new PTO board has decided to continue using PTBoard for the ease of announcements, volunteer set-ups, and donation payments. Thanks for a great service!
- Dawn Mooney, East Elementary School PTO President, Athens OH
This will be our 3rd school year using ptboard. Ptboard was at an annual state conference I went to; the representative took her time explaining everything to me and even let me play around on the demo mode on the laptop that was there. After presenting it to the board we voted to switch. What we like best about it is that it is really everything in one place; one site does it all emails/announcement, sales, auction, calendar, etc. After our first year we got great feedback from parents and teachers that it was very easy to navigate and use. When I see people asking about websites in different groups I am in, I also recommended ptboard and when they use my school name as a referral both school get a year free, best referral program. The best thing that we like about ptboard other than everything in one place, is that they are also improving, the silent auction aspect was new and now this year they have rolled out an app. I look forward to see what comes next.
- Amanda Kirby, Jacobs Road Elementary School PTA President, Chesterfield VA
PTboard is our one-stop shop for our PTO needs! We were using 3 different websites in the past for volunteer signups, our newsletter, and our actual website, and we were looking to add a webstore when I came across PTboard. It's so nice to have one location for all of our needs, and add in other great features like an online student directory. The tech department is also amazing. They listen to suggestions for improvement, and they help me out if I'm not sure how to use certain features. There was no risk to sign up since my first year was free, and any other referrals I make will add additional free years for our organization. Definitely try it out!
- Angie Vasey, Big Hollow PTO President, Ingleside IL
I love this website. So much easier than designing my own. That's what I was thinking of doing. I even took a PTA class on how to build your website. All those plugins. I got so confused. So when comparing. There was really no comparing. I was like I am not going to spend days trying to figure out how to build a site. I am going to with PTBoard. I had it down in no time. Easy to use. Plus the price and the referrals are amazing. Thank you.
- Amber BOWMAN, Chesterton Elementary PTA President, San Diego CA
Easy, efficient, fun and top notch customer service - PTBoard is a great product! The staff is always responsive, provides ongoing tips, and virtual training. We are always delighted with our experiences with PTBoard.
- Alicia Atkins, Varina & Mehfoud Elementary Schools PTA President, Richmond VA
PTBoard has made all the difference for our PTA this year! Our membership and volunteering increased and our communication with parents improved because of the tools that PTBoard offers. Thanks to PTBoard we were able to achieve our goals of increased family engagement and better communication with parents. We are so happy to have everything we need in one place!
- Atiya Dawkins, Bush Hill Elementary PTA President, Alexandria VA
As a fairly new PTA in general, with all new board members, being able to find a website that is strictly designed for Parent Teacher Associations and Organizations has been a life saver. All of the forms that we need and electronic payment options available to run successful fundraisers and events are right there, already prepared on the site for us to manipulate. However, I have been most impressed with the customer service I have received from PT Board. Anytime I have had a question or need clarification, my representative has been there to help me every step of the way. Each person I have contacted has been extremely understanding and helpful! It has been our best decision as a board to use PT Board as our website partners.
- Cori Lanigan, Fairfax Villa Elementary PTA Vice President, Fairfax VA
Our PTO began using PTBoard in September 2016. We are so happy with that decision! The features are very user-friendly, and having all information in one place has been so helpful to both our families and PTO board members. Using the Forms/Payment feature has made spirit wear and activity sales easier - parents like being able to pay with a credit card, and it cuts down on forms/money being sent in with students. We would highly recommend PTBoard for any school!
- Shannon Hilliker, Brown Elementary School PTO, New Boston, MI
This year, 2016-2017, is the first year that we have used PTBoard. We already had a webpage, however it was not user friendly and took too much time to update or add any new information. This software is extremely easy to use. PTBoard customer care team has been very helpful answering my questions and addressing my concerns. They have also been a great liaison between us and the tech team. When we have e-mailed them about added features we would like to have on some of the applications, it has been wonderful to receive those updates in order to make our PTA work smarter and not harder. We have had 75% of our parents join the website, which has allowed us to go paperless this year. We love this software and our PTA website. We plan on using this next year because of the user friendly aspects. We would recommend PTBard to any and all PTA's.
- Michelle Swindle, Correspondence secretary, Strawbridge Elementary School PTA, Virginia Beach VA
PTBoard has been an excellent tool for our PTA. It has saved us countless hours registering kids for our events and parents are so quick to volunteer for times when we really need it. Their customer service is top notch and they have always been very responsive to our needs. Looking forward to working fewer hours and being more organized in our programs thanks to PTBoard!
- Meghan Addario, Palmer PTA, Baldwinsville NY
PTBoard makes the connection between school and home seamless. It enables the PTA leadership and school administrators the opportunity to solicit volunteers, communicate with home, and manage complex school events in a user-friendly platform.
- Melissa Pietricola, Principal L. Pearl Palmer Elementary, Baldwinsville NY
PTBoard has been an invaluable resource for both communication between the West Virginia PTA Board of Managers and between the state and local units. By having effective resources at our disposal, we are able to further the PTA Mission. I highly encourage PTAs at all levels to incorporate PTBoard in their daily use.
- Justin M. Raber, West Virginia State PTA President
PTBoard has become our 7th Board Member! Our families and teachers are pulled in many different directions but PTBoard is a 24/7 one-stop shop that may be accessed easily on a mobile device or a computer. We easily create online flyers and email a weekly update that is posted on our PTBoard dashboard. Class parents or teachers may set up a class volunteer schedule using the group calendar which only that group of parents has access to. The online class directory has easily allowed parents to connect with one another to set-up play dates for their children. Reports are easy to run and save on your computer plus there is no paper to keep track of. Lastly, the PTBoard staff has been very open to hearing our suggestions and to make changes as needed! PTBoard will make your PTA a rockstar!
- Jorie Gelnett, Ball's Bluff Elementary School PTA President, Leesburg VA
PTBoard has allowed me to communicate important dates and events to my school with cute eye catching templates. It has allowed us to send messages easily to small or large groups. We have been able to keep our directory current as students rise into different classrooms. The staff at PTBoard is very helpful and knowledgeable about the site and helps answer any questions you may have. Our families love using this compared to previous methods. Thanks PTBoard!
- Grace McDaniel, Reston Montessori School PTA President, Reston VA
PTBoard has changed the way our PTA is able to communicate with our PTA members for the BETTER!! It is so easy to use their announcement feature to send a message to all PTA members and school faculty. The sign-up feature has been fantastic for getting volunteers for different activities. I can't sing enough praise for their customer service. Whenever we have had a question, we usually have the answer within minutes!! PTBoard is definitely worth it.
