Local Board Orientations

A Local Board Orientation (LBO) is an opportunity to have a council board member come to your school and meet with you and your PTA Board. At the orientation, we go over the financial do's and don'ts, help your board members create their plans of work, help your board set your goals for the year, review meeting protocols, and basically go over whatever information your board needs. We tailor our presentation to meet your needs.


The orientations may be scheduled during the days or evenings and may even be scheduled for the summer. If you are interested, contact Solange Grande at .


Foundations Leader Orientation (FLO fka LOT)

Foundations: Leader Orientation training has been designed with the new PTA leader as its focus. The goal of this course is to provide a firm understanding of the missions, vision and purposes of PTA.


Per Texas PTA Bylaws all board members on a Local PTA board are required to attend Foundations Leader Orientation training (FLO). By requiring all board members to attend this training it will give them the level of knowledge in the mission and purposes of PTA. Including all board members in this training will strengthen our PTA boards and help with board development. Training is still required to take place by October 15th per PTA Bylaws. You only need attend FLO once.


FLO is the only training that Council charges a fee to attend. This fee is $8.00 which covers the cost of materials purchased. If paying by cash please bring exact change. Checks made payable to NISD COUNCIL OF PTAs will also be accepted. The training fee should be reimbursed to members by your PTA as part of your training budget.


It would be most helpful if all attendees bring a copy of their PTA's bylaws.


PTA leaders seeking training for specific board positions are encouraged to participate in one of our other educational courses.


Officer and Position Specific Training

Officer and Position Specific Training allows you to get detailed training on specific positions and allows the opportunity to ask position specific questions. Anyone is welcome to attend any training regardless of their current PTA position.



Workshops are "How To" trainings that go into detail on specific items. Anyone is welcome to attend any workshop regardless of their current position.



Roundtables are question and answer sessions about an activity or position. If the roundtable is about an activity that does really well at your school and you would like to come and share information, please let us know in your registration email.
