PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A gay-straight alliance at Provo High School could begin meeting today. However, it could be awhile before the Provo Board of Education makes a decision about a proposed club policy that would give the group formal recognition.

Board members said they want to get opinions from their constituents and tweak the proposed policy before voting on how clubs will be formed and function.

Provo High School students who wanted to start the alliance say they're expecting to meet with the principal today despite the delay and could be given club status.

The students began the process to receive a club charter about a month ago, prompting district officials to consider a districtwide club policy.

The club would be the first gay-straight alliance at an Utah County high school.

The board plans to meet on November eighth to discuss club policy. The proposed policy is expected to be posted online at www.provo.edu.
