Important Announcement: The NiskyPTO e-Directory Service
The Niskayuna Parent-Teacher Organization uses your contact information to create school directories for distribution at back-to-school night in September. The PTO also uses your contact information for volunteer activities and recording PTO membership. The traditional process of obtaining your contact information from the school district's registrar was recently discontinued. Accordingly, the PTO required a new way to collect contact information. The PTO e-Directory service was initially trialed in 2013 for Niskayuna High School. With support from the PTO Council, the service was rolled out to all Niskayuna PTOs in 2014.
The e-Directory is a secure online service that enables you to directly share your family’s contact information with the PTO. The service allows you to add or edit family contact data at any time to make sure it's up-to-date, accurate, and reflects what you want to share. Contact information entered need only be updated if there’s a change to your email, phone, or address. You may also opt-out specific family members from the printed directory. The service automatically moves students up to the next grade on July 1st and reassigns schools as necessary. Contact information entered is only accessible to PTO Officers and Directory Committee members; parents cannot view other parents' contact information online.
Unless you provide contact information using the service, the PTO will not have this information available when the school directories are distributed at back-to-school night. Additionally, many PTOs will be using the service at back-to-school night to verify contact information and record PTO membership.
Note: If you have questions about your family's contact data on file with the school district you should call the district registrar, Joan Vertigan, at (518) 377-4666.
