ADVOCACY

 The foundation of the PTA is advocacy.  As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, PTA provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child and the best tools to help their children be safe, healthy, and successful - in school and in life. We advocate for children at school, district, regional, and state and national levels.

Throughout the year, we keep members informed of relevant legislative issues affecting the Issaquah School District and Issaquah High School, provide updates on the ongoing legislative session, provide relevant information about and arrange meetings with our local state legislators, and promote voter registration for students who have recently turned 18 and for all voters in local, state, and national elections.

In Washington State, PTA has been a leader in engaging all levels of government to improve the lives of all children and their families. Members of IH PTSA play an important role in this process.  Every year, we send delegates to Legislative Assembly in the fall and Focus Day in the Winter. See below for further information.
