Spanish term or phrase: Presidente de la Cooperadora
Hi! I'm subtitling an Argentine film that takes place in a public school (Elementary School).
One of the characters is "Presidente de la Asociación Cooperadora", whose translation would be: President of the Cooperative Association. This kind of associations consists of parents who raise funds for the maintenance and improvement of the school, take care of the building, help kids with low economic resources, etc.
It's just for public schools.

Is there such a thing in English-speaking countries?

My first instinct was translating the position as President of the PTA but I guess it's not right.
I look forward to your advise.
TIA!
