Proposed MCLIMS PTO Bylaw Amendments

The MCLIMS PTO Executive Board wishes to propose 2 changes to our governing document. We will review the reasons for these changes and take a general vote at the next General PTO meeting which will be held Wednesday, September 4th in the evening at 6:45pm.

The first change is to make all parents, teachers and staff automatic members of the PTO, not conditioned upon payment of dues. We will reserve the right to set voluntary dues in the future, but for this year we will not charge dues. Our organizational mission, as stated in the Bylaws of the MCLIMS Parent Teacher Organization, is “…purpose of the organization shall be to enhance and support the unique learning environment at the Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School, to create open, close communication between the school and home, and to involve all stakeholders in the children’s well being and development. The PTO especially strives to support the teachers and administration in creating a positive, enriching environment for all students at the school through volunteer and financial support.” We believe by removing restrictions to membership, we will be able to: truly involve all of our stakeholders; improve communication between the school and home; and provide more opportunities for collaboration and support for teachers as well as encouragement for language learners and their families.

The second change would allow electronic funds payment of bills, which was previously prohibited. We would continue to require oversight by 2 account signers on these payments. Many of our vendors prefer to be paid electronically, and it is much easier for us to submit our sales tax payments online as well.

A full copy of the bylaws, with proposed changes in BLUE is available here: MCLIMS PTO Bylaws Proposed Amendments August 2013
