Football is "Premature"

The agenda for Wednesday's meeting is up and it includes the football committee report.   The committee is chaired by Principal Allen and Athletic Director Corey and includes Glen Miller, the ORYA representative who made the original proposal.

The recommendation from the committee chairs says "to start a high school football program is premature at this time."   It's likely that the board will go along with this recommendation and not vote to adopt football at Oyster River High School.

As you can see from the one slide I reproduced here, the issues remain the funding, the awful memorandum of understanding, the lack of available facilities and Title IX.  There was also a discrepancy in the number of students likely to participate, with the three surveys yielding 33, 16 and 60 respectively.

I don't want to write too much on this before the board meeting this Wednesday.  See you there.
