Is PTSA part of a larger organization?

Yes.  Our PTSA is chartered by Oregon PTA, which is a separate educational advocacy organization.  Here is their website:

Much of the $10.50 PTSA dues go to help fund Oregon PTA.  In addition to advocating for Oregon schools, Oregon PTA provides training and support for SES PTSA volunteers.  The Oregon PTA also provides liability insurance for PTSA-sponsored activities at SES.  This behind-the-scenes support helps make many SES events possible.
