Clubs and Organizations
Any student may initiate the procedure for starting a new club during the beginning of each trimester during the school year. A PHS staff member must be identified to advise the club. New club petitions are available from the ASB room or via the links below and should be returned to the Club Commissioner. The completed petition must state the name, purpose, and membership requirements of the proposed club and must be signed by at least twenty (20) PHS students who are prospective members. A constitution must be drafted by the proponents and will be reviewed and approved or denied by the Student Review Board. The Student Senate must also approve the club.
School sponsored clubs must be either related to the curriculum or must be service organizations. Political, religious or philosophical clubs and organizations are permitted by the Poway Unified School District and are referred to as non-school sponsored clubs. These clubs, student-initiated and led, may not have regular attendance by non-school persons, and must have a non-participatory custodial advisor. School sponsored and non-school sponsored clubs and organizations must abide by all regulations and procedures established by the schools ASB constitution.
Club Guidelines During Virtual Learning
All clubs must still follow the guidelines set forth in the PUSD Club Handbook. All clubs must go through the traditional approval process including completing a club application or club renewal and form. Clubs must continue to keep records of their meetings by taking meeting minutes, attendance and turning in financial request forms when applicable.
Meetings and Club Events
As always, a club advisor must be present at all club meetings. This includes all virtual meetings. While participating in club meetings or activities all school rules apply.
Clubs must still complete and submit a fundraising request form and get approval before a fundraiser can occur.
