Welcome Students!

This page has been created for you because this is the Texas Association of STUDENT Councils. TASC is an organization devoted to student leadership. Student leaders with the support of adult advisors make their hometown councils strong, relevant groups which provide the opportunity for voice, ownership, and involvement to every student in their middle and high schools. It is the efforts of thousands and thousands of students just like you who have created the legacy of TASC, and it is up to each of us to continue to provide resources and experiences that make student council effective in schools across the state of Texas.

If you have not studied the TASC logo, take a moment to do so. In it, the state is made up of individual speech or voice bubbles which represent student voice in Texas. Those voice bubbles illustrate commitment and purpose as together we make TASC stand out as a star among student leadership organizations. The resources on this website are designed to aid you as you build strong relationships, enhance your organizational skills, and invite others to join you and your council on this journey of leadership.
