"Our main goal is to increase communication between the PTO and the parents," said Trigger, "at the high school we have been trying to use electronic to communicate with parents for the past three years. First we started using grade-level email lists and then we transitioned to asking people to subscribe to the website. Email is what people use today, and you can contact them at any time day or night."
The newsletter will be posted on the website but will also go out in hard copy. The Niskayuna PTO is not in a situation yet to make it only available online but is pushing for parents to subscribe to the online updates to cut down on paper waste by printing the newsletter out during the year.
