Local Training

Sept. 29 2015 – Foundations: PTA Leader Orientation and Training @ 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

This is a reminder that the GCISD Council of PTAs will hold our annual Foundations: Leader Orientation  (a/k/a FLO, f/k/a LOT) training on Tuesday, September 29 at 9:00 am and again at 6:30 pm in the Mustang Corral at the PDEC.

The cost is $8.00 made out to GCISD Council of PTAs.  It is preferable to come with ONE check for each Local PTA Board.  The BASICS Leadership Training, if requested, is free.  The LOT will last approximately 75 minutes.

A reminder that FLO is recommended for all PTA Executive Board members at least once in their PTA career – even if you have had the former LOT training.  It is also likely a requirement of your bylaws that all of the members of your Local Executive Boards be a graduate of FLO and complete the course by October 15 after election/appointment.

Some of you and/or your officers/chairs may have taken FLO at SLS this summer.  You can also now access online FLO Training at: pta/training/

Additionally, we now have BASICS training from Texas PTA for Officer and Chairpersons in the online Resource Library on the Texas PTA website. If anyone would like this BASICS training in person, we will do that by request only and so far we have not received any requests for that training.

Presidents, please send to Tisha Ghormley the names of the members of your Boards for Foundations, and let her know if you are requesting any Officer/Chair training (Presidents, Secretaries, Parliamentarians, Treasurer, Membership, etc.) in addition to FLO.
