II. Discussion  

II.A. Discuss options for a cooperative agreement for sports  

Principal, Tony Primavera, presented a PowerPoint slide show with the basic information regarding the proposed cooperative agreement for sports. 


President Broz stated that this session was to answer questions from the patrons and receive comments.  The committee had met with area schools to determine what would be the best for our district and students.  The district is unable to coop with Wallace or Hitchcock County because of our current 6-man football schedule.  Wauneta-Palisade was interested in unifying districts.  The committee felt that co-oping with Maywood is the district’s best option. 


Discussion was held regarding transportation of the students back and forth to practice and games, practice and game schedules, coaching staff, Junior Varsity program, participating in golf and cross country, and being able to provide our students with options. 


Many patrons offered their support and stated that we need to do what is best for our students. 


III. Adjournment – President Broz adjourned the meeting at 9:05 P.M.
