STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS                        6124

Student organizations shall generally be encouraged when they meet the criterion of contributing to the learning process.

All student organizations associated with the Meriden Public Schools shall comply with written school procedures.

All requirements for membership in student organizations must reasonably reflect the purposes of the organization. Membership shall not be subject to the popular vote of existing members of any such organization. Fraternities and sororities are prohibited in all Meriden schools.

School-planned and school-sponsored activities shall be designed so that students who might be otherwise qualified or interested will not be excluded because of the expense associated with those activities.

Public performances shall be limited to those from which a definite educational benefit is to be obtained. They may never be held for purposes that contribute to private gain or advantage.
