What is HCCPTA?
The Henrico County Council of PTAs (HCCPTA) works with Henrico County's PTAs and PTSAs to provide our children with the highest-quality educational environment. It serves as a link between local PTAs, the Richmond District PTA, the Virginia PTA, and the National PTA. The HCCPTA's elected Board strives to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education, health, and well-being of every child. HCCPTA cultivates meaningful partnerships with various stakeholders (including parents, students, communities, and school systems) while serving as the primary resource for parent advocacy and involvement within Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS).
