Parent organizations and booster clubs are organizations established to promote school programs or complement student groups or activities. A parent organization’s or booster club’s purpose may be to support students, student groups or programs at a particular school. Support may be as simple as providing refreshments for a particular event or it may be as complex as raising money for an out-of-state competition. The parent organization or booster club works through the principal to provide assistance with the planned activities of the school or student group. However, the parent organization or booster club does not have the authority to decide the activities or trips in which students or student groups will participate. The parents of the parent organization and booster club may provide suggestions about particular activities; however, the principal or other appropriate administrator is responsible for the final decision.
