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.
