7416 – Co-curricular And Inter-scholastic Programs

The Board believes that student co-curricular activities are a vital part of the total educational program that should be used as a means for develop­ing wholesome attitudes and good human relationships.  School citizenship, as reflected in student activities, is a measure of the achievement of important school goals. The activity offering should be of sufficient variety to meet the wide range of interest and needs of students.

Guidance is necessary to encourage the non participants who need activities, and to prevent the over-enthusiastic from over emphasizing activities at the cost of academic performance.

A co-curricular and inter-scholastic program shall be planned in observance of requirements of state and federal guidelines.

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

  1. Require all student participation to be on a voluntary basis.
  2. Require that student activity funds be used for purposes which bene­fit the student body of the school.
  3. Require an orderly accounting of the management of the activity and student funds.
