Advocate for Our Kids

By Joan Crooks, PTSA Legislative Chair

One of the key roles of the PTSA is to advocate for our kids and our schools. Here are three things you can do as we start off the school year:

1. Learn about the candidates for Seattle School Board – The Seattle Council PTSA and the League of Women Voters are sponsoring a Seattle School Board Candidates Forum. The details: Thursday, October 8 from 7 to 8:30 pm, at Seattle First Baptist, 1111 Harvard Avenue. Registration is requested but not required.

2. Take the Legislative Issues Survey – The Washington State PTA advocates in Olympia for the well-being and education of all children. The WSPTA wants to hear from you to assist voting delegates who attend Legislative Assembly in Olympia October 24, 2015 in setting the 2015-2016 Legislative Platform. Learn about WSPTA’s top five priority issues. Complete the issues survey which closes October 1.
