Mission Statement
Douglass’ PTO is a parent volunteer group whose primary goal is to support the well-rounded education of children in Douglass Elementary School.  We accomplish this through successful fundraising and volunteer recruitment; enrichment programs; and community events.

Vision Statement
The PTO is organized and shall be operated exclusively for those charitable purposes under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (or corresponding provisions of any future federal tax code). In addition, the PTO shall formulate and monitor annual school improvement goals in accordance with the Colorado Public School Finance Act of 1988 and any subsequent accountability legislation or regulation.

The following specific purposes are included, without limitation, in the foregoing general purposes:
  • To support the well-rounded education of children in Douglass Elementary School (Douglass)
  • To improve the quality of education and the total school environment at Douglass by supporting and funding the academic and environmental goals set forth by the School Accountability Committee (SAC)
  • To serve in an advisory capacity to the principal of Douglass, and to work in a collaborative forum with the principal and staff to facilitate effective site-based management.
  • To raise funds through fund-raising activities that shall be used for educational projects and other educational activities for Douglass’ students, faculty and staff.
  • To act as a coordinating body, for all members of the PTO who would like to volunteer their time at Douglass, and to provide a structure for communication among students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators and member of the community.
