About Issaquah High PTSA, Unit 2.6.45

Our PTSA is a private, non-profit organization with members dedicated to serve students, parents and staff of Issaquah High School. The PTSA also advocates for the health, education, safety, and welfare of all children.

We are affiliated with the Washington State PTA and National PTA. We are governed by the Washington State PTA Uniform Bylaws and our own Standing Rules. These Standing Rules define specific conditions for our PTSA unit, and may not be in conflict with the Washington State PTA Bylaws. Our Board of Directors consists of officers, elected by the general membership each spring for the following school year, and appointed committee chairs representing many areas of interest throughout our school community.

We are recognized by the state of Washington and the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, meaning donations to the PTSA are tax deductible.

Our meetings, held monthly and open to everyone, are a great resource for school information and networking with other caring and dedicated parents.

Parents, school staff, and community members are invited to join IH PTSA. Join online (with the option to pay online or by check) or print out a Membership and Donation form here and return it with payment.
Some benefits of membership are:
~ Receiving a copy of our IHS student directory and parent handbook, published each fall and mailed to PTSA members; and
~ Knowing that your membership is a voice for advocacy for all children in our community, state and nation
~ Free registration for ParentWiser events (go to the ParentWiser website for current parent education events).
All Issaquah High students are granted honorary memberships (without voice or vote) at no cost.

Donations made to PTSA are our primary source of income to support our many programs, events, and activities.

Members are also welcome to become involved with one or more of our many committees by signing up to volunteer or by contacting the committee chairpersons. Go to the Officers and Committees webpage for contact information. Your help is also welcome on an as-available basis throughout the year as your schedule allows.

Many wonder about the differences between PTSA, ASB, and Booster Club. Visit our webpage that describes all three!
