I just got back from my very first PTO meeting. During the meeting the President slipped up and said PTA and she then corrected herself and said that it will take a while to get use to saying PTO since they changed. I believe that PTO stands for Parent, Teacher Organization and PTA stands for Parent, Teacher Association. So, what is the difference?

PTA is a national organization that each school must pay dues to, and follow their guidelines. PTO is done independently by each school who uses it and isn't associate with any national organization....hope that makes sense..and helps.
