and Payment of ASB Expenditure” form, using the approved estimated costs from your “Fundraising

Revenue/Expense” statement, to ASB for approval. Attach a copy of your approved fundraising form

Each organization/club is required to have a constitution, a teacher or administrator as advisor, 

and must keep regular minutes. The purpose of a constitution is so that your club/organization 

is an “official” club/organization. It is also a convenience to all staff and students who want to 

know more about your club/organization.


The formal way of governing a club or an organization is preparing and maintaining a record of

each meeting. This is performed through taking minutes. These minutes serve as the record of

each meeting and exhibit that the club is following the school’s policies and procedures.


Costs and Benefits of Maintaining this system:


By following the procedures and regulations outlined by the State, District, and School,

student organizations will receive equitable treatment and equal access. It also provides a

singular process for all groups to avoid events that contradict, duplicate, or break policies.

A strong system provides a simple clearinghouse for proposed events.


By not following the rules and procedures as outlined by the State, District, and School,

serious consequences can follow including fraud, negative media attention, inequity,

favoritism, discrimination, legal action, investigation under whistleblower laws, loss of

Federal Free/Reduced Lunch Program, and teacher/staff personal liability.
