NTFSA, an affiliate of TASBO, connects people for the purpose of sharing ideas to strengthen the M & O divisions of the schools of North Texas in an effort to provide a positive, high-quality learning environment.


The North Texas Facility Services Association (NTFSA) formerly NTMOA began in 1968, born out of necessity. One of the original founders, Paul Barger, who in 1967 had recently taken the position of Director of Maintenance for the Irving Independent School District, had in his words, “a lot of questions and not enough answers” to the problems that beset the management of school buildings each day. In search of answers, Paul contacted directors of other districts to gather answers to his questions he was encountering. In the spring of 1968, Paul contacted a number of directors for a meeting in his office of what is remembered to be the first unofficial meeting of the NTFSA. Among those invited were Paul Booher of Arlington ISD, Kurt Drew of Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD, Dick Musgrave of Dallas ISD, Tom Kupper of Lewisville ISD, Joe Walker of Mesquite ISD, Charles Wages of HEB ISD and a gentleman from McKinney ISD, whose name escapes the recall of the contributors*, but was remembered for his refrigeration expertise, which was emerging as new technology for schools at the time.
