NiskyPTO.org was initially established by the Rosendale Elementary School PTO in 2006. Due to popularity, all Niskayuna PTOs now host their websites here. Additionally, other groups closely associated with the PTO and endorsed by Niskayuna Central Schools may publish informational pages and links. The website is maintained by parent and student volunteers from across the Niskayuna Central School District. Organizationally, NiskyPTO is the public face of the Niskayuna PTO Council.
