Scott McComas brought to the boards attention he felt there was a need to have a committee developed that he could head up to address the athletic positions in the district.  He was informed that a committee existed and that although he was interested in heading it up we currently have an athletic director that was employed to head it up and set the committee parameters.


Troy Wilson spoke to the board regarding the Cougar Head that is to be painted on the new gym floor at the high school.  He was getting feed back from students that students felt the ASB was being pressured to foot the entire bill when they were under the assumption that it was to be split by the Booster Club.

B)     Discussion was held regarding a letter the board received to reinstating Baseball for 2009/2010 and to co-op with Triangle Lake (Blachly) School District.  Discussion was held to open both Baseball and Softball and agreeing to allow the co-op with Triangle Lake in Baseball as long as all fees’ from students were received prior to the start of practice.  That the district would accept Jason Scott as the volunteer coach for Baseball and the district would cover expenses up to 2,800.00 for referees and transportation. Other funds were being raised at this time (see attached letter) to offset any expenditures above the 2,800.00 the district would cover.  All funds were to be turned into the district office and would be earmark for the baseball program and expenditures.
