The Texas K-12 CTO Council, a self-standing organization created by CTOs in the state of Texas in 2003, was CoSN’s first chapter. It was officially incorporated as a non-profit in August 2005. Their petition to the CoSN Board launched the process of creating state chapters. Its purpose is to assist Texas K-12 School districts in understanding how to plan for the use and successful implementation of information technology in Texas schools and advocate for districts’ technology needs to improve student learning. The organization officially rebranded in July 2021 and change the name to Texas Education Technology Leaders. The purpose, mission and vision remain the same.
