Common Questions - Website/Systems
The School District changed the overall website hosting platform to Membership ToolKit (MTK) during the 2016/17 school year. Each school within the District has its own website that is managed by the District and school administers. The District's protocol requires the school PTA's to have their own discrete websites. The two websites are linked but the PTA is not allowed to solicit donations on the District hosted School site. As such, we now have TWO websites. The School District site is intended for the larger community, not just our current students families. Someone moving to the area, for example, may be interested in learning generic information about the school. In contrast, the PTA website includes pertinent information directed to our current families.
The G-Drive architecture will support ALL of our PTA files and databases. If you are having trouble accessing a specific drive and/or need access, please write to Tech@baywoodpta.org.
Switching the website to the Membership ToolKit (MTK) platform in 2017 precipitated a change in payment processors. MTK works with different vendors than our previous website host. You do NOT need to have a PayPal account to make a donation. If you do, it should be even easier for you to purchase tickets for an event or make a donation. If you run into any issues, please write Tech@baywoodpta.org.
Our PTA website is mobile friendly, so it can be accessed on your computer, tablet, and mobile devices. For the mobile devices, dedicated mobile app is also available for all our registered users (For help registering, please visit "why register" page.
