The Texas K-12 CTO Council is an institutional membership organization open to K-12 school districts. Other education agencies and other interested parties in the state of Texas may join as affiliate educator or affiliate corporate members. The primary audience will be the Chief Technology Officer (CTO)* of K-12 districts.

*The Chapter recognizes that job titles vary from district to district, but the term Chief Technology Officer (CTO) will be used to represent the lead person that is responsible for the maintenance and operations of technology in K-12 school districts.

Categories of CoSN Membership

There are three categories of membership:


School districts, educational service agencies, charter or private schools, state departments of education, colleges and universities, or other associations can join CoSN as institutional members.


CoSN's corporate membership increases the visibility of a company's products and services among K-12 education technology leaders who are responsible for district technology buying decisions.



Individuals with an interest in educational technology issues, such as recent retirees, graduate students, or ed tech consultants can also become members. This membership category is not available to those who are currently working for schools, school districts, or other businesses. If you fall into this category, you must join CoSN as an Institutional or Corporate member.
