Congratulations to all of the schools and students that participated in this year’s Reflections program, “Heroes Around Me”!
Here is the list of winners at the County level.
Duval County Winners 2018-2019
For each grade division, three entries were given the Award of Excellence; these entries have been forwarded to the State Reflections program for judging at the state level. We will keep you apprised if any entries advance to National PTA for judging in the late Spring.
The Duval County Council of PTAs is pleased to offer six (6) $500 scholarships to students graduating from Duval County schools in 2019. This is a one-time (non-renewable) award of $500.
There are several changes to the application. This year there are four scholarship categories: University & Fine Arts, Community College, Vocational-Technical and Adversity/Opportunity, each with specific GPA requirements. The Adversity/Opportunity scholarship is for a student who has an extenuating hardship situation that they are working to overcome. Additionally, these scholarships are available to students who are attending out of state schools, an option that was not available last year.
The scholarships are available to Duval County high school students who are members of their PTA/PTSAs or the Sunshine State PTA. Student’s full-time enrollment for 2019-2020 must be at an accredited postsecondary institution. See https://ope.ed.gov/accreditation for the Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs. Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2019. The deadline has been extended to April 15, 2019!
We look forward to reviewing the applications. For more information, contact Scholarship@dccpta.org.
Florida PTA also offers multiple scholarships of $2000. For more information on how to apply for a Florida PTA scholarship visit FloridaPTA

Answer— Audits must be completed after June 30 when your fiscal year ends. Complete your audit by September 30, although much earlier is preferred. No financial activity can occur from July 1 until after the audit is completed.
Question??? What annual PTA audit form should I use?
Answer— DCPS has a newly revised audit form that Florida PTA will accept DCPS Annual Audit Report Form. So you can use this form for the state and DCPS bookkeeper.
Florida PTA does have its own form that will be in the 2016 Treasurers Kit of materials, most likely will come out later in the summer. You will only receive the kit if your PTA has registered your officers for next year with Florida PTA. For last year’s form sample Click Here. Your school bookkeeper will accept the Florida PTA form as long as you include all of the information from the district form on it.

- Your school bookkeeper, must be accompanied with copy of June bank statement.
