Northshore Council is the PTSA that oversees the 34 local PTAs within the Northshore School District. We are here to support our PTAs, develop leadership, promote membership and give service to the local school community.
Council is a key link in the line of communication between the local PTAs, Region 6 (there are 13 Regions in WA State), WA State PTA and the National PTA. Council contributes to a stronger, more effective organization by providing information, inspiration and instruction for its member units.
Councils serve the entire area, not just a portion of it, by helping PTAs focus on what they need to pay attention to and when, by training officers as they come into their positions, and by collaborating with the school district.
