Whether you are a certified educator, an Education Support Professional (ESP), or a member of any of the various membership categories in ISTA, ISTA provides legal services and resources to help you in both your daily professional and personal lives.


Among the resources offered, as an ISTA member you are provided protection while you’re on the job.
