Legal Information

LEGAL REFERENCE: 70 O.S. SECTION 24-105
The Mustang Board of Education believes that certain extracurricular and social activities can enhance the learning environment of our schools. The board of education shall annually notify parents or guardians of students about clubs and organizations sponsored by or under the direct control and supervision of the school district. The annual notification shall be placed in the student handbook and by posting information on the school’s district website. The annual notification shall include, but is not limited to, the following information about each club or organization:
  1. Name
  2. Mission or purpose; and
  3. Name of the faculty advisor, if known
Parents or guardians of students will notify the school administration that they are withholding permission for their child(ren) to join or participate in one or more clubs or organizations. Parents or guardians will need to fill out and sign the “Withhold Permission” Form and return it to their child’s school site. Parents or guardians shall be responsible for preventing their child from participating in a club or organization in which permission is withheld. Parents or guardians are also responsible for retrieving their child(ren) from attendance at a club or organization in which participation is withheld. Nothing in this subsection shall prevent a club or organization from meeting when a student who is not authorized to be in the club or organization is present at such meeting.
 
If clubs or organizations are created or formed after the annual notification is distributed, the school district shall send additional notification to the parents or guardians containing the above-listed information regarding the additional clubs or organizations by way of a message added to the school’s district website.
