Digital PTO Overview Features

Unlimited Informational Pages

With Starter, Basic, Premium & Premium Plus

Busy Parent Groups have a lot of information to share and distribute. From Membership Drives, to After School Enrichment, to Fundraising Programs to Business Sponsorships. The list could go on and on. Digital PTO sites are built to accommodate as much information as you want to include. Need a page on Box Tops for Education? No Problem. Need to make a page about the Science Fair? It’ll take you 30 seconds. Posting Informational pages is easy and unlimited with our Paid Plans. Free Plans are limited to 10 informational pages.


Unlimited News Posts

Post Unlimited NewsIncluded with Every Plan

Your Digital PTO website is built to manage and handle all the news and information you can throw at it. Post every month, post every week, post every hour, it’s up to you. One thing is for certain though, we won’t stop you! Unlimited News Posts for all plans.


Add Images to Personalize your Site

Included with Every Plan

In our testing, we have seen that news posts with an image are 5 times more likely to be read than news posts without. Images add a connection for readers. Upload clip art, stock photos or your own photos to enhance your groups website. Need to resize an image? Your website will take care of that with a few clicks.


Digital PTO is as simple as sending an email

Post News to your Site in Minutes

It’s true. If you can send an email, or create a simple Word Document, you can run a Digital PTO site. They are that simple to use. First, decide if you need to add News or Information. News is something with a time-frame attached to it like “Science Fair next month!” and Information is something that you always want available on the site like “Contact the PTO”. Once your selection is made, type or paste in the text you want to use, click to add an image, preview your post & when you are happy with it, publish your news to the community. It’s really that simple.


Technical & Hosting Features
