NISD Council of PTAs was chartered in 1961 under the authority of the Texas PTA. With us embarking on a new school year, the NISD Council of PTAs is composed of over 22,000 PTA/PTSA members within 107 Local Units, serving over 100,000 students and their families. As a District we are one of the top four in the State and within the top ten of the Nation’s largest Districts.
We, the Council Board of volunteers, have been busy preparing for the exciting year ahead! We are looking forward to meeting all of you and working with each of the Local PTAs in fulfilling the PTA Mission:
To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Every child - one voice.
We as a Board are here to assist the various Local PTAs within this vast District. We offer a variety of Training classes and support classes with materials; which include the Local Board Orientation training where we can come to your school. Along with the Jack C. Jordan Scholarship, Healthy Lifestyles, and Reflections Fine Arts Program, Council publishes five newsletters a year.
Along with classes and programs, we hope that by using our website you be able to find useful information. If you have any additional questions, the Council Board members’ contact information can also be found on the website. Don’t forget to have everyone on your Local Board to “Like” the Council Face Book page. We will also be posting any new information and news there. We hope to see many of you at the General Assembly meetings held at the Northside Activity Center. They will be on September 1, November 3, January 5, March 2, and May 4.
On behalf of the members of Council, we would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to each of you, the parents, grandparents, family members, community members, teachers and administrators for all the work you do each day on behalf of the children in the community. Thank you because you “Back the Future”.

1. Make sure to send copies of treasurer reports for your board and general meetings to the Vice President assigned to your PTA.
2. Remind officers and chairpersons to update procedure books thoughout the year. Some PTAs have a transition meeting so that the current board members can give the binders to new members who will be taking over their duties and can answer any questions. When possible leaving contact information is helpful for any questions later on.
3. Make sure that you designate the signers on your account as needed due to changes in officers and note them in your minutes.
4. Designate who he non-signer is that will open and sign your monthly bank statements each month and note this in your minutes.
5. Financial reconciliation should be completed prior to a new treasurer taking over the books and writing any checks, or any time a signer is added or deleted on the account.
Please let us know of any questions you may have at any time.
