Thank you to those who could attend the May 16th PTA meeting. It is evident that we are a passionate group that wants the most for our kids. After the dust settled, I was able to meet with the Austin Council of PTAs that works directly with TXPTA. We’ve had several conversations and I met face to face with their president and parliamentarian. After my meetings with them, I’d like to announce to you that the votes regarding the preliminary budget passed 19 Yes to 18 no. It was discovered that 3 votes were cast by proxy. According to Article IX, Section 4 of the TXPTA bylaws: “There shall be no proxy voting.” Therefore, this means that the budget was approved by a simple majority vote.
