El Campo High School offers a number of clubs that students may join. In order to be a member in good standing, the student must be approved by the club's sponsor and have a good attendance record. Merely paying the dues does not qualify a student for membership.
Student clubs, classes, organizations and parent groups will occasionally be permitted to conduct fund-raising drives. An application for permission must be made to, and approved by the principal. Except as approved by the principal, fund raising is not permitted on school property.
Student clubs and performing groups such as the band, choir, drill team and athletic teams may establish rules of conduct-and consequences for misbehavior-that are stricter than those for students in general. If a violation is also a violation of school rules, the consequences specified by the school shall apply in addition to any consequences specified by the organization.
