Policy No. 3540 Secondary School Clubs

Provo City School District Board of Education maintains a “limited open forum” for clubs in secondary schools.

Curriculum clubs are authorized in grades 7-12. Curriculum clubs are sponsored by District schools and may receive leadership, direction, and support from the school and the District.

Non-curriculum clubs are authorized in grades 9 -12 under state and federal laws and regulations only for the purpose of granting a place within the school for students to meet during non-instructional time. Non-curriculum clubs are student initiated. Their meetings, ideas and activities are not sponsored or endorsed in any way by the Board, the schools, or by school or District employees.

The Board reserves the right to create a “closed forum” at any time during the school year or at any other time by allowing curriculum clubs only.
