         Students may form clubs and other groups organized to promote or pursue specialized activities outside the regular classroom.  Membership in student organizations, whether school sponsored or non-school sponsored, must be open to all interested and eligible students.  The building principal and the board shall approve school sponsored student organizations, and a staff member shall attend the meetings or activities to supervise use of the facilities by all student organizations as an advisor or supervisor.

         Student Clubs

         The principal shall establish regulations for the operation of school sponsored clubs, and for the use of school facilities by other local clubs not sponsored by the school.

         School sponsored clubs shall be under the direct control of school personnel.  Every school sponsored club shall have a constitution which has been approved by the building principal and filed in the school office.                                   

         Non-School Sponsored Student Clubs

         Non-school sponsored clubs shall submit a request for use of school facilities prior to using the facilities.  A faculty member (or other adult approved in advance) may attend the meetings as a supervisor but may or may not participate in the group’s activities.

         Student Government

         Student councils under the direct control of the building principal or designated faculty representative may be established.  Student councils may exercise only the authority expressly delegated to them by the principal.
