KENNEWICK, Wash.—Less than a month after the Kennewick School Board approved a controversial club policy it was put back on the agenda for Wednesday, September 28th.
The School Board removed the policy, which kept non-curricular student clubs from using school yearbooks, newspapers and the public access system to advertise their club. The policy also would have kept non-curricular clubs from having access to Associated Student Body accounts. However, non-curricular clubs cannot be sponsored by the school because of the Equal Access Act.
The policy was originally approved August 18th after the formation of a new Gay Straight Alliance. The board set new regulations that required creating a fair opportunity to any student who wants to start or to continue a club.
