ASB Advisor:  Kurtis Evans

 
 
Associated Student Body "ASB"
 
All clubs, activities, and sports at Issaquah High School fall under the ASB.  One of the capabilities of the Issaquah High School ASB (All Student Body) is it provides basic funding for all extra-curricular activities at Issaquah High School.  ASB funding comes from the sale of student ASB cards, fundraising, and donations. Grant requests can be made to the ASB for additional program needs.  All ASB funding requests (including Booster Club requests) for IHS clubs, activities, and sports must go through an approval process that starts with ASB, then if needed, proceeds to the Booster Club.    
 
ASB Activity Coordinator, Kurtis Evans, has an open-door policy and is always willing to discuss ASB and answer questions.  Contact Kurtis if you have any of the questions below:
    • Is your student is interested in starting a new club?
    • Looking for a list of all clubs and activities, with advisors?
    • Interest in requesting funding from ASB? 

 

 

 
Clubs and Activities Overview

Issaquah High School has a rich culture of student clubs and activities that engage a diverse mix of students in a variety of ways. These include groups based on unique student interests, recreation, art, relationships, community service, STEM, music, theater, and much more. More than 95% of Issaquah High School students feel that these groups provide chances for involvement in school activities, and most students participate in at least one group throughout their high school experience (Healthy Youth Survey, 2012).

Different from athletics, clubs, and activities are primarily student-run and facilitated. While activities have staff advisors who lead and support groups of student officers and other group members, most clubs are entirely student-led.  Additionally, clubs oftentimes rely on volunteer staff advisors who supervise meetings and support students in pursuing club objectives. Several activities also have a curricular component where the group meets for a period during the school day in addition to their extracurricular meetings. Therefore, activities often require applications, auditions, interviews, or tryouts for placement into a group/team/class. Clubs, on the other hand, are open to all students.
