Curricular and Non-Curricular Clubs
In Boerne ISD, we feel that part of the public school experience is for each student to have a group of students and activities that support the academic portion of the school. We value and encourage students to be part of school organizations and clubs. These groups supplement and enrich the required academic workload by providing experiences in collaboration, leadership, and service.
There are two types of “clubs” for students in Boerne ISD, Curricular Clubs and Non-Curriculum related Student Groups (or Non Curricular Clubs).
Curricular Clubs are linked to specific content in the district curriculum. These are school-sponsored “standing clubs” that exist year over year. While these clubs have a student leadership component, they have a faculty sponsor that may support their activities.
Non-Curricular Clubs are student-initiated and driven. These clubs start over each year as they are driven by the interests of the current student body. Non-Curricular clubs are only available to secondary students.
Expectations of All Clubs
Both Curricular and Non-Curricular Clubs are expected to:
- Obtain approval for additional club activities that take place on campus
- Obtain approval for any communications, postings or flyers that will be distributed outside of the assigned club meeting place/time.
- Obtain approval for guest speakers to come on campus (see BISD Agreement and Guidelines for Guest Speakers)
- Obtain parent permission to participate in club meetings and activities that occur on campus
