Other Information!
  • As a reminder, we have an online system where Unit Presidents and Treasurers may request general financial training or cash handling training seminars for their unit. Units must use this form:  (click here.) to make the request.  Only unit presidents or treasurers may make the request.

  • NEW! ELECTRONIC PHOTO RELEASE NEWS! We have confirmed that the TVUSD Photo Release form (available and signed through Infinite Campus) DOES cover PTA activities. This is great news and a sign of what a pro-PTA district we have! With this exciting news comes a couple of caveats:
    • 1) The list of students on the DO NOT PHOTOGRAPH list will be available from your site secretary or administrator. We at TVC PTA do not have access to this information!
    • 2) These release forms DO NOT release the use of the students' names, only their images. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do NOT publish any student names on any social media or internet site.
    • 3) More than anything, we want to protect children. Please use caution and good judgement when posting any pictures in a public forum. 
    • 4) Verbal authorization from ADULTS is acceptable. Simply asking them and receiving verbal confirmation that you may post their image is good enough.

Thought for the Week:

"It is always better to be kind and understanding than to be right." --Al Fox Carraway


That's all for this week! Hope it is wonderful!
