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.
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.
