Who is this for? #

  • A director who already created a Presto organization and needs to create a Presto district to link them together.
  • If you have a district-level Fine Arts Administrator, then you probably don't need to create a district. Please share this article titled "Create a New District" with that person so they can create the district.


All Presto Assistant organizations must belong to a District which helps manage data across all Presto Assistant organization types in a district — Band, Choir, Dance, Guitar, Mariachi, Orchestra, and Theater.
