What’s The Difference Between PTSA, ASB, and ISF?

The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), Associated Student Body (ASB), and Issaquah Schools Foundation (ISF) are three separate but complementary organizations which provide a variety of support to multiple programs at Skyline. While each school has its own PTSA and ASB, the ISF supports all schools district-wide.
