PTA MEETING – THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22 AT 6:00 PM VIA ZOOM – Please Register

Dear Parents + Guardians-
PTA elections are being held during our PTA Meeting on Thursday, October 22st at 6:00pm via zoom. SLT elections will be held immediately after the PTA elections (in the same meeting). In order to conduct secure and fair elections the office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) is requiring a few extra steps compared to our regular zoom meetings. They are:

• Please register at Eventbrite in advance at www.eventbrite.com/e/125893933143

• You will receive an order confirmation with a number (your ticket). Every voter will need to register separately.

• When you enter the zoom meeting please rename yourself with your ticket confirmation number. You will be able to call in but it is much simpler to vote via zoom video. If at all possible, please select this option. Every parent and/or guardian of a current IS318 Student is eligible to vote. Each voter will need to register and sign in on to zoom separately.

• We will be taking nominations from the floor for ALL PTA & SLT positions. You can also email IS318PTAelection@gmail.com with advance nominations. We must elect a President, a Treasurer and a Secretary in order to be certified. Positions can also be Co-Pres/ Co- Treas/ Co-Secretary. SLT has 7 vacant parent seats.

• Elections will be conducted via Google Survey by link during the meeting.

• If you can not register with Eventbrite please contact IS318PTA@gmail.com and we will give you a registration number and call in information.

• If you have any questions about PA positions or the process please contact the PTA or election committee.

Thanks for working with us on this process!

Queridos padres,

Las elecciones de PTA se llevarán a cabo el 22 de octubre a las 6 pm a través de zoom. Las elecciones del SLT se llevarán a cabo inmediatamente después de las elecciones de la AP (en la misma reunión). Para llevar a cabo elecciones seguras y justas, la Oficina de Participación Familiar y Comunitaria (FACE) requiere algunos pasos adicionales en comparación con nuestras reuniones habituales de zoom. Son:
1. Regístrate en Eventbrite con antelación en www.eventbrite.com/e/125893933143
Recibirá una confirmación de pedido con un número (su boleto). Cada votante deberá registrarse por separado.
2. Cuando ingrese a la reunión de zoom, cambie su nombre con el número de confirmación de su boleto. Si es posible, seleccione esta opción. Todos los padres y / o tutores de un estudiante actual de IS318 son elegibles para votar. Cada votante deberá registrarse para hacer zoom por separado.
3. Tomaremos nominaciones de la sala para TODOS los puestos de PA et SLT. Considere correr. La junta debe tener un presidente, un tesorero y un secretario para poder ser certificado. SLT tiene siete asientos para padres vacantes.
4. Las elecciones se llevarán a cabo a través de Google Classroom Recuerde completar la encuesta para cada puesto durante la reunión y
IS318PTAelection@gmail.com

5. Si no puede registrarse en Eventbrite, comuníquese con IS318PTA@gmail.com y le darán un número de registro y la información de llamada.
6. Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre los puestos de la AP o el proceso, comuníquese con la AP en IS318PTA@gmail.com

¡Gracias por trabajar con nosotros en este proceso!
