The Parent Teacher Organization Council (PTOC) is a group of dedicated parents whose mission is to provide a communication, resource, and leadership network within the Bloomfield Hills School community. The PTOC, by facilitating the information flow within the community and between individual school PTOs, works hand-in-hand with the district administration and Board of Education to support ideals and goals that will ensure the best quality education for all students.
The PTOC is dedicated to the education and development of children and to the integration of these goals into our extended communities. Sub-committees such as "Community Action for Kids' Education (CAKE)" and "In the Loop" operate to reach out to district parents and community residents who do not have children within the BHSD school system to inform them of important educational issues.
The PTOC Executive Board convenes to discuss current district and state wide educational issues, and prepare for monthly General Meetings, where PTO representatives from each school come together. These meetings are integral for information sharing and speaker presentations.
The PTOC, and in turn, the PTOs from each school, encourage participation from all community members. We pride ourselves in being an open, informative organization that is willing to work together in the best interests of our children.
