If your chapter is not appearing on the NHSDA website, there are several possibilities:
A. If you are unable to locate your chapter in the Chapter Search, please try being less specific in your search. For example, if you attend Pretend High School for the Arts in Silver Spring, MD, try typing just the word "Pretend" in the school name field, and leaving the City and State fields blank as you run your search.
B. If the NDEO Institutional Membership affiliated with your NHSDA chapter has at any point expired, your chapter has automatically closed. Please contact an NDEO staff member (email@example.com) for assistance. We will reactivate your chapter for you.
