The Indian Prairie Parents’ Council is the umbrella organization for all 34 local PTA and PTSA units in District 204.  We share a commitment to the goals of Illinois PTA and National PTA.

Our delegate body is comprised of the President and IPPC Representative from each local unit.  We meet monthly to share information about issues affecting the education, health and welfare of children and youth in District 204.

If you have questions about IPPC or suggestions for how PTA can better serve the needs of our District 204 community, please contact us.

Illinois PTA

Each member of our PTA is also a member of the Illinois PTA, along with members of every other Illinois PTA or PTSA.  From the Illinois PTA website:  www.illinoispta.org:

“The Illinois PTA was founded on May 30, 1900, and has since worked diligently to support public schools and to ensure that all children and youth have equal opportunities and access to a quality education.  We are a state-wide volunteer organization dedicated solely to the welfare of children and youth in the home, school, and community. The Illinois PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is guided by an approved set of bylaws.”


National PTA

Each member of our PTA is also a member of the National PTA, along with members of every other PTA or PTSA in the country.  From the National PTA website:  www.pta.org:

As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.

PTA does not act alone. Working in cooperation with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the national PTA organization collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.
