CHSEPTA Membership Form & News

  • As we prepare for the 2016-17 school year, Cherry Hill Special Education PTA is preparing for another successful year.

    We are also looking for 100% membership from our wonderful principals.

    We serve as an advisory counsel to the school district under the NJEA requirements and is a district-wide PTA for all parents, caregivers, district employees and community members. We offer support, education, advocacy and socialization for the special learning need community in Cherry Hill. With this in mind, we are looking for CHSEPTA members from each school to serve as liaisons to share information between CHSEPTA and their school to open up more positive conversations. If you have someone in mind, please notify us.
