Required Steps For Approval Of Organization Of A School Club »
  1. Financial Officer or Commissioner of Clubs discusses and explains district procedures/requirements and issues an application.
  2. Students must acquire a commitment for sponsorship from a faculty member.
  3. Students, with the assistance of the faculty advisor, draw up the club constitution consistent with district procedures, complete application, and submit both to a Commissioner of Clubs for initial ASB review (if the validity of a possible club is uncertain, it is best to propose the idea to a Commissioner of Clubs to assure its feasibility before filling out the required paperwork).
  4. A Commissioner of Clubs reviews the club application and documents. If all district requirements have not been met, the application and attachments will be returned to the originator with appropriate comments. If all district requirements have been met, the ASB Advisor and a Commissioner of Clubs signs the forms and submits them to the Principal or the Principal's designee for approval.
  5. The Principal or the Principal's designee reviews and signs if approval is granted.
  6. Club paperwork will then be filed in the financial office (available for student perusal) and the club added to the official club list (also available to both students and faculty).
