General Family Meetings for the Balboa Community

All General Family Meetings are open to the Balboa community—students, parents, and staff— and are held at 6:00pm in the Buccaneer Room at Balboa High School. They cover a wide variety of topics and are for the benefit of our Bal community. A light dinner is served, and attendees get community hours*!

Board Meetings

We also have PTSA Board Meetings somewhat monthly at which we approve funding requests and take care of other business of the PTSA. 

If you'd like to join our board meetings to see what is going on with Bal, we'd love to have you. Email us for a link to the zoom meeting (or about anything else). 

*Each year, Bal students are required to do 25 hours of community service.
