Procedure for Starting a New Club:

  • High school students may start their own club by proposing their idea to Student Government at an informal meeting. They may have an interest meeting for their club prior to or after attending an informal meeting. Once interest has been demonstrated and the club has been proposed and approved at a formal meeting, the club may begin operating.
  • Information to provide to Student Government about your club:
    • Teacher sponsor, potential meeting dates, fees and budget (if necessary), which grades the club is available to, and the activities and goals of the club.
