Peekskill PTO (K-12)
Starting in the 2015-2016 school year, the Peekskill City School District will now have one unified Pre-K to Grade 12 Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The PTO is an important part of school life, helping with programs and activities, enhancing positive communication between the school and parents, and organizing fundraisers and other special events. PTO meetings will be held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, starting on October 21st. Meetings will be held in the Ford Administration Building at 6:30pm. We encourage all parents to attend and to take an active role in our school community!
Peekskill Special Education PTO (SEPTO)
The Peekskill Special Education PTO (S.E.P.T.O.) was formed in 2005 as a collaborative effort between parents and the Special Education Department to improve and enhance support for children with special needs in the Peekskill City School District. When the individual school PTOs merged into a single K-12 PTO in 2015-2016, SEPTO decided to remain a separate entity. Although SEPTO will remain a separate organization, we will be working side by side with the newly centralized PTO Council. We have chosen to remain a separate organization because we believe SEPTO can better achieve its goals and meet the needs of our special needs students and their families in this fashion. SEPTO will continue to help special needs students and their families, and the professionals who service them, just as they have been doing since the organization was formed several years ago.
