PISD Council of PTAs Database Entry

Do you have board members who are not receiving communication from their Plano ISD Council of PTAs counterpart?


We ask that all local PTA officers and chairs register with Texas PTA.

Visit https://www.txpta.org/ and click on this button/link:

(Location will change depending on the size of your device/screen. Top of page for large displays, bottom of page for small (mobile) displays.


This is the preferred method for local leaders. Register with Texas PTA so that they have your contact information and we have access to it as well.


Optionally, PTA Presidents can also register board members on Council's website:


In My Account > Contact Information on the council website (click here):


At the very bottom of the form is a question, "Are you a Plano ISD PTA President?"

Be sure to choose "Yes"

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.
