PISD Council Of PTAs’ Database Entry

Do you have board members who are not receiving communication from their Plano ISD Council of PTAs counterpart? If so, they may not be in our database. The information you entered for TX PTA is not readily available to the Council Board for communication, but it is required to be a PTA in Good Standing. Make sure you have entered information for all board members with a Council counterpart in the following.

 

To get to the place on the council website,  click HERE

  1. At the very bottom of the form is a question, "Are you a Plano ISD PTA President?", choose "Yes"
  2. Enter each of your board members and their contact information - don't forget to enter yourself as President!

Since the Council of PTAs uses this information to contact their counterparts in the local PTAs, only those on your board with a Council counterpart are required. Others may be entered for informational purposes only, if you like.
