PAYROLL DEDUCTION AUTHORITY: I authorise a payroll deduction of $28.87 (GST inclusive) per fortnight to be paid to the South Australian State School Leaders Association. I understand that my membership will not be effective until the first payroll deduction.

SASSLA is the sounding board school leaders need.  It is unfortunate that principals and other leaders need this type of protection but when needed it is efficient, supportive and acted on in a timely manner.  SASSLA provides a highly confidential service through email, phone conversations or site visits.  This organisation provides independent legal advice for a group of educators who experience common issues and are open to litigation.
