Q: Is is legal for a PTA to auction off spots for cars in a "parent pick up line" ?
In an elementary school the parent pick up line starts to form more than 90 min before the students are released at the end of the day. The line is very long and the PTA has auctioned off the first two spots in the front of the line for the two parents (with the highest bid) to arrive anytime before the last 5 minutes of the school day.
I don't hear anything illegal about what you have described. As long as the school's administration approves and there are no safety or traffic laws broken, the PTA can auction off those coveted spots. On the other hand, enforcement may prove interesting!
