“As part of its educational mission for students, Clovis Unified School District allows both curriculum and non-curriculum related student clubs to meet at school during non-instructional hours (e.g., before classes begin, during lunch period, club schedule, after classes end). The Governing Board believes that curriculum and non-curriculum-related student organizations can have an important place in students’ lives. Besides extending and reinforcing the instructional program, such groups can give students practice in democratic self-government and civil social discourse, as well as providing social, intellectual, and recreational opportunities.
Non-curriculum-related student clubs and the viewpoints and speech expressed at meeting of such clubs do not necessarily reflect the views of the Clovis Unified School District or the Board of Education.

Starting a New Club

Students wishing to begin a new club must: 
  • complete a “New Club Petition” with a typed constitution (available in the Activities office)
  • have at least fifteen (15) other students that are interested in this club (must be underclassmen) 
  • find a staff member that is willing to be the club advisor
  • complete club list located on left side tab listed "Clubs" 

Who can join a club?

If eligible under applicable District eligibility standards, your student will have the opportunity to join one or more such clubs and to attend and participate in the meetings of any club that he or she joins. However, you have the right to inform the school in writing of any particular student club in which you do not wish your student to participate.  Consent to participate will be presumed without written notice to the contrary.” (Policy 2505)
