FAQ's about PTSO
Q. Is LISD PTSO part of a national organization?
NO. LISD PTSO is an independent organization local to LISD. It was
chartered in this manner so that the funds we raise could be kept local
to our school.
Q. Is LISD PTSO a nonprofit?
YES. We are truly a non profit organization. We use all of the funds we
raise to help out around the school with many fun events as well as
helping the teachers out in their class rooms.
Q. Does LISD PTSO serve both schools?
A. YES. PTSO has one board who serves both the Elementary school as well as Jr/Sr High.
Q. Since LISD PTSO is nonprofit, where do the monies raised go?
All of our money goes back into both schools. The money is used to
supplement Graduation, Prom, Planners for the students, breakfast for
TAKS week the Jr High dance among other things that might come up on the
Jr/Sr High campus. We also help fund Field Day, Fall Carnival and
Mercado for the Elementary school. We also give the teachers a small
stipend every year which is used to supplement their classroom
How can I become a member or find out how to volunteer?
We have a volunteer questionnaire on our website and email. We welcome
all volunteers with open arms and during the "meet the teacher" night
we have a volunteer sign-up. We also send out membership flyers at the
beginning of the year. We charge a nominal fee for membership that
helps us support the school.
Q. I work and don't have a lot of time during the day to volunteer, how can I support LISD?
We always need volunteers to help make phone calls and get support from
outside and inside the base. We also have several events that are
after school that needs volunteers to run it (family nights, spring
fling, fall carnival, etc...). We suggest that every family volunteer 1
hour a year to the school in some way.
