    Club Guidelines – Chief Sealth International High School

    Clubs are a fun and enriching part of our Chief Sealth International Community!

    In order for clubs to be successful and compliant with ASB regulations please follow these policies:

    #1 All ASB sanctioned clubs must have elected officers and a constitution which must be submitted to the ASB office every year. (If you need help creating a constitution please see the CSIHS website for examples.)

    #2 Clubs should meet on at least a monthly basis and submit minutes to the ASB office. (See the policy on meetings and minutes below.)

    #3 Clubs must have a staff member advisor. The staff advisor must be present at all meetings and events that are held at school. Advisor must also attend any fundraiser for your club.

    #4 Clubs must follow ASB procedure for fundraising. (See fundraising policy below.)

    #5 Club officers must purchase an ASB card. Clubs are encouraged to have their members purchase ASB cards as well.

    #6 Clubs must be open to any and all students that wish to join.

    Meeting & Minutes Policy: Clubs are encouraged to meet at a time that works best for their members and advisor. This could be before or after school or during a Mentorship day that has be designated for “travel” to other classrooms. At an official meeting, written minutes should be taken and any decisions involving fund-raising or fund-spending must have a student vote. Club attendance must be included with the meeting minutes. Keep a copy of your minutes for your club records and submit a paper copy to the ASB office.

    Fundraiser Policy: Any ASB sanctioned club must follow proper ASB fundraising guidelines. Fundraisers must have proper paperwork submitted at least a week in advance. Most successful fundraisers are planned much more than a week in advance, so please plan ahead. Fundraisers are granted on a first come-first serve basis. Submit your paperwork early if you want to reserve a particular time period or item. Fundraisers that involve food items are VERY complicated, so see the Activities Coordinator for the full rules regarding food fundraisers BEFORE you get too far in your planning process. Fundraisers done outside of school guidelines or without ASB approval must be labeled as such.

    Any questions? Please see the Activities Coordinator:
