6700: Co-Curricular Activities

Extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities, and interscholastic athletics and activities are an extension of the selected content curriculum and instructional strategies of the Millard Education Program, whether or not they occur in a traditional classroom setting. As an extension of the Millard Education Program, and as a result of financial, facility, personnel, and interest limitations and constraints, the number and nature of extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities, and the number of interscholastic athletics and activities will be restricted to those which meet the criteria of and which are approved according to the procedures specified in District Rules 6700.1 and 6700.2. The District shall not be required to approve or promote any extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities, or any interscholastic athletics and activities which are suggested for approval. Extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities, and interscholastic athletics and activities are separate and distinct from the co-curricular activities such as band and choir, in which students must participate as part of the requirements for enrollment in and receiving a grade for a particular course. Extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities, and interscholastic athletics and activities are separate and distinct from the student-initiated, non-curriculum related secondary school student groups which are permitted to conduct non-curriculum related student group meetings on the premises of secondary schools, pursuant to the equal access provisions of federal law and District Policy 5520 and Rule 5520.1. Such non-curriculum related secondary school student groups are not extracurricular, are not school-sponsored, are not an extension of the Millard Education Program, and are not governed by this Policy or District Rules 6700.1through 6700.8.
