The Tannehill Board of Education encourages the organization of special clubs in the schools when the students' interests or needs justify them, democratic principles are followed, and adequate and competent sponsorship is available.
The board believes that it is in the best interest of this school district to prohibit, and does hereby prohibit any fraternity, sorority, secret society, secret club, or secret group composed in whole or in part of students enrolled in the schools of this district.
School clubs are recognized after their constitutions and sponsors have been approved by the school authorities. Out-of-school clubs are not recognized by the school and their activities, unless authorized, are prohibited at school.
Teachers of the Tannehill schools shall not sponsor or attend meetings of a fraternity or sorority-like club that secures its membership from high school or middle school students.
All monies collected, handled, or disbursed by a club shall be deposited with the principal or the designated financial secretary and in accordance with state law and the requirements of the State Board of Education.
To form a club or organization, the Student Council votes on a petition written by one teacher and five or more students of the proposed club. The petition should include the following:
