Kingswood PTSA works to enrich the school experience for students, parents, and staff by providing opportunity, equipment, and education. PTSA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
Periodically, the council also reviews school policies and offers feedback. Our by-laws dictate that donated funds be utilized for extra-curricular activities; unless otherwise specified by those making the contribution. The distribution of tax expenditures is governed by an application process. All requests are examined by the council on a monthly basis and a majority vote decides each pending issue. During the academic year, the Site Council will focus its efforts on extra-curricular clubs, athletics funding, fine arts, and staff compensation for structured tutoring services. Ongoing fundraising, via community tax credit applications, will also play a prominent role.

Our school community is excited to integrate community members into our schools and programs. Community members looking to get involved and make a difference in the lives of children and their families can volunteer in many ways for our school, offering valuable support to educators!

You can support Kingswood and receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit. Choose one of the four categories and a school to support, and 100% of your donation goes to the category and school of your choice. Arizona Law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows married couples filing jointly a tax credit of up to $400 and individual taxpayers a tax credit of up to $200 when they contribute to extra-curricular activities in public schools. This tax credit is available to all who reside in Arizona and have a tax liability at least equal to that of their donation. You do not have to be a parent of a child in our school to benefit from this law. Contributions are donated directly to the school. This means your donations are used directly to support student activities here at Kingswood.
