Student Clubs and Parent Clubs

Coolidge Unified School District is affiliated with both student clubs and adult clubs (Booster/PTO). Each group is governed by different rules, all of which must be overseen by CUSD. Rules include state rules, and district policies. 

Student Clubs, who contribute to what is referred to as Student Activities, are student led clubs affiliated with an approved sport/activity on campus. These clubs must hold meetings to propose fundraising activities, ultimately approved at the district level, and to expend all funds. Meetings must be submitted to the District Office to document a majority approval of activities. These rules are set by the state and overseen by the District Office. 

Parent led clubs, Booster or PTO groups, are led by adults/parents and are governed by a different set of rules, also overseen by CUSD. These are state laws. Money raised by these groups are held in a bank account independent of CUSD.
