Associated Student Body
California law allows students in California's public schools to raise money and make decisions about how they will spend this money. Student organizations that are established to raise and spend money on behalf of students are called Associated Student Body organizations, or ASBs. ASBs must be made up of current students. The funds that are raised and spent by student organizations are called student body funds or ASB funds. ASB organizations and the management of ASB funds presents students with opportunities not only to raise and spend money, but also to learn the principles of operating a small business and acquire leadership skills while making a contribution to their school and fellow students.
The ASB must be approved by the Board of Education and be subject to its control and regulation. As such, the activities of the ASB cannot be in conflict with the Board’s authority and responsibilities and statutes.
The Oceanside Unified School District’s Board of Education has approved Associated Student Body Organizations at El Camino High School, Oceanside High School, Martin Luther King Middle School, Cesar Chavez Middle School, Lincoln Middle School and Jefferson Middle School.
