Capistrano Unified Council of PTSA (CUCPTSA) represents more than 21,000 members from 54 schools’ PTA/PTSA units in Capistrano Unified School District. Our primary goal is to empower unit PTAs to advocate on behalf of our students through Legislative, Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and Art Advocacy programs.  These programs provide parents with resources and information of legislative updates and programs provided by our school district. 

The main purpose of CUCPTSA is to provide support, guidance and resources to our school unit PTAs to assist them in providing programs that will enhance the educational experience of our students and strengthen the home-school connection.  We also look to acknowledge the amazing work of our students, teachers, and staff district- wide through our Reflections Program, Special Education Sunshine Awards and College Fair. 


Elizabeth Mordock
2022-2023 President, Capistrano Unified Council of PTSA


El Concilio Unificado de Capistrano de PTSA, también conocido como CUCPTSA, representa a más de 21,000 miembros de 54 unidades de PTA / PTSA de las escuelas en el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Capistrano. Nuestro objetivo es empoderar a nuestras unidades de Asociaciones de Padres y Maestros (PTA) para que aboguen por nuestros estudiantes a través de nuestros programas del Comité Legislativo, Comité Consultivo de la Comunidad (CAC) y Comité de Arte. Estos programas proporcionan a los padres recursos e información de actualizaciones legislativas, y programas proporcionados por nuestro distrito escolar.

El propósito principal de CUCPTSA es brindar apoyo, orientación y recursos a las Asociaciones de Padres y Maestros de nuestras unidades escolares para ayudarlos a proporcionar programas que mejorarán la experiencia educativa de nuestros estudiantes y fortalecerán la conexión entre el hogar y la escuela.
