At Chief Sealth, the teachers, administrators and staff are committed to helping your student succeed and graduate. This success is only possible with your involvement. When caring parents, guardians, and extended family members are involved, students achieve more.
As our communities become more diverse and families live busier lives, family involvement in education can and should take a variety of forms.
Chief Sealth International High School’s PTSA exists to support the school’s programs, staff, students, and families by strengthening our community and raising funds to “fill the gaps” for important programs and activities not funded by the traditional channels. Please visit the PTSA Website.

Building Leadership Team (BLT)
BLT is a representative group of all school stakeholders, teachers, staff, administrators, students and significant community partners (including parents). The team is grounded in the belief that collaborative site-based decision-making structures are essential to accelerating student academic achievement. The primary objectives of the BLT are to lead the school’s effort to achieve the goals in the school improvement (transformation) plan; make decisions about the professional development of school faculty to support the instructional program necessary to successfully implement the transformation plan; make budget decisions related to the plan.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact the school to be placed on the parent volunteer schedule. Some ways parents/guardians can volunteer: tutoring, clerical support, hallway monitoring, teacher assistants in the classroom, translating materials, and serving on various school committees. We truly appreciate your participation as a parent volunteer and we will make every attempt to match your interests and skills with projects or tasks that you are comfortable with.
