Briarlake PTA is National PTA School of Excellence

September 1, 2016


We did it! Briarlake has just been named a 2016-18 National PTA School of Excellence! National PTA recognized 173 schools and PTAs representing 31 states and one Department of Defense school in Germany. Out of these 173 schools, there are 14 schools from Georgia and one from DeKalb County… our own Briarlake Elementary!

This award acknowledges our school as a ‘nationwide leader in developing strong family-school partnerships. The National PTA School of Excellence designation is awarded “when a PTA and school have achieved a high level of family engagement or when a PTA and school have made substantive, positive improvement in families’ perceptions by the end of the school year”.
