Student Leadership Commissioner

On the secondary school level, PTA expands to include students. Students are encouraged to become members, making PTA at the school PTSA. Local PTSAs include students in leadership activities and events. Students are organized at the local level in different ways as best fits each individual school.    

PTSA is a PTA at a middle school or high school that recognize students as members. The student group is led by students with a parent volunteer (i.e. PTA Board Position) for mentoring. The students focus on service – either to the school, the student body, or outside community. To begin your student group, find incentives to join: best parking spot, gift card, traveling trophy between schools.
