Frequently Asked Questions

Why an online/application directory? The board decided to offer an online solution for convenience, improved communication and efficiency. The Directoryspot app allows most members of the community to have access to contact information for all members of the community with them when they need it, on their smartphones or via the website. Using an online solution, we have been able to get the directory out several weeks earlier than in previous years. We also have the ability to include links to information such as Monday Messenger and ISPTSA.org.   As directory information is occasionally changing, an online solution allows families to keep their information up to date.  The printed directory was sometimes out of date as soon as it was printed. In addition, the DirectorySpot application is a more affordable solution than printing hundreds of copies of the directory. As this is our first year using DirectorySpot, we certainly welcome your feedback.

Is there a paper version, like in previous years? The ISPTSA will not be printing and delivering a paper copy of the directory this year.  DirectorySpot has a downloadable PDF feature that can be accessed from the website.  You can then print as many copies as you would like from your own computer.

Can I opt-out? If you would like to "opt out" of the app and NOT have your family information included, please just send an email to vpcommunications@isptsa.org and put "opt out directory" in subject line and your family name.
