Can we have student memberships?

Our PTSA would like to have student memberships—is this okay?  Can the students sign themselves up or should we have a parent sign them up?  Can we have a special membership rate for students that is less than the rate for adult members? 
Yes, student members are both permissible and a great way to make students part of the support in the school.  The students should be signed up by a parent or guardian to avoid any problem, and a lower rate is permissible as long as the rate charged is sufficient to cover the national, state and (where applicable) council membership service fees.
