    Club Proposal - Information for Website


    • Clubs are an integral part of the educational process.  It is an opportunity for students to explore new interests or socialize with friends in supervised activities.


    • A club is a meeting of a group of individuals for a specialized purpose. All clubs must have an assigned ERHS-employed sponsor responsible for their supervision/management.  Every club must go through the ERHS approval process, be BOE approved, and are subject to ERHS regulations.

    Creating a New Club

    1. Check in the Student Activities office or Activities Brochure (on ECCRSD website) to determine if a club similar to the idea you have in mind has been previously approved. If no existing club matches your description, then request the appropriate registration forms from the Activities office.

    2. Read the student guidelines for starting a club and the starting a club checklist.

    3. Complete the club application request and find at least 25 interested students to sign interest form.

    4. Ask a current staff member to be a faculty/staff sponsor. It is necessary that a staff member sponsor each activity. 

    5. Complete the club requester form. Additionally, you must submit a proposed constitution.  Write and have your sponsor sign a proposed constitution for your club either by using a template included with the form. Be sure to include elements such as how students become members of the club, how officers are chosen, how officers can be removed from office, what the responsibilities of the officers are, and how money will be raised. Any questions about the content of the constitution should be directed to the appropriate person in the local school Activities Office. Return the application and constitution to the school’s Activities office. All forms must be typed or computer-generated. All new club/activity applications must be submitted no later than the first of October or the first of February. 

    6. The forms will be reviewed by the Vice Principal of Student Activities and School Principal.  The Vice Principal will make all recommendations to the BOE.

    7. Upon approval by the BOE, a copy of the application and constitution will be filed in the Activities Office.  Copies will be returned to the sponsor and forwarded to the School Business Office.  The sponsor of the new club will need to contact the Activities Office to set up an account.  In order to raise or spend funds, clubs must be approved by the Board of Education, which allows the creation of a student activities account with the activities office.

    Club Activities may not begin until your club has been approved by ERHS BOE.
