STUDENT ACTIVITIES

 

 

The Grant Parish School Board recognizes that student activities at school are a vital part of the total educational program and should be used as a means for develop­ing wholesome attitudes and good human relations, as well as knowledge and skills.  The Board recognizes that school citizenship, as reflected in student activities, is a measure of the achievement of important school goals.  The Board recognizes that the greatest values to be derived from both curricular and student activities occur when such activities are developed and encouraged through participation among, or the knowledge of, the student body, interested members in the community, and school staff.

 

The Board further desires that any program of student activities should:

 

1.

Require all student participation to be on a voluntary basis;

 

2.

Require that student activity funds should be used for purposes which benefit the student body of the school;

 

3.

Require that the management of student funds be the responsibility of the students with assistance from the organizational sponsor and the school administration; and,

 

4.

Permit the formation of student unions, student clubs, and other student groups organized to promote or pursue specialized athletic, social service, and social activities providing that all organizations have the prior approval of the Board of Education.
