Attention! Membership Option Changes are here.

With the implementation of the ESSA and the changing landscape of education, we have decided to restructure our organization and revamp our membership options to create a stronger, more unified voice. The ESSA's shift in power from the federal level to the state level allows us to now, more than ever, be a greater advocate for our schools and communities. In order to build up our grassroots movement of putting Tennessee students first, we are offering you the opportunity to solely join the TASSP, as an individual or a school, as opposed to the previous requirement of joining both the TASSP and NASSP together.

New options available on the Membership Page
