ADVOCACY & LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

Advocacy is at the core of our PTA mission to make every child's potential a reality. By engaging and educating members on important issues at the local, state and national level, PTAs become an important voice in making decisions that impact Texas families.

 

Constitutional Election:
The state of Texas has an upcoming constitutional election on November 5th, 2019. There are 10 proposed Constitutional Amendments on the ballot, but Proposition 7 is the measure with the greatest direct impact on public education.  On October 1st, 2019, the Northwest ISD Council of PTAs Executive Board voted to formally support passage of Proposition 7 on the November 5, 2019 Constitutional Amendment ballot. Please check out the new Northwest ISD Council of PTAs newsletter for more information.
