(a) The purpose of this section is to provide a procedure that enables school districts to promote and govern interscholastic activities effectively, economically, and fairly, while keeping those activities in their proper perspective educationally.
(b) A school or school district may join and, to the extent authorized by its budget, may pay dues to the Alaska School Activities Association, Inc., or any other voluntary, nonprofit association whose purpose is to administer and promote interscholastic activities in Alaska so long as the association
(1) makes applications and membership available to all public and private schools, and school districts in the state;
(2) is governed by a board that is elected from the association membership and that fairly represents all regions of the state, that participate in the organization and whose membership may also include appointed representatives of other education organizations;
(3) adopts a constitution and bylaws setting out its philosophy, purpose, rules, and procedures, including a fair procedure for challenging interpretation or application of a rule;
(4) operates in compliance with state and federal law; and
(5) administers interscholastic activities in a manner that
(A) encourages high standards of citizenship and complements the academic programs of schools;
(B) is consistent with and advances the state's education policy set out at AS 14.03.015 ; and
(C) recognizes that the organization and governance of interscholastic activities is a public purpose that is best met through the cooperation and association of interested schools and school districts.
