State drawing new rules on school sports spending

Posted By on Tue, Apr 5, 2011 at 10:44 AM

The state Education Department plans a public discussion April 11 on proposed revisions in rules governing school district athletic spending.

Here's a draft of the proposal that has been sent to interested groups. Spokesman Seth Blomeley cautions that it is subject to change. Eventually, the state Board of Education will put a final draft out for discussion before adoption.

The first discussion will follow the state Board meeting April 11 at the department auditorium on the capitol mall. Interested people are invited to attend and comment. It's all about getting an accurate assessment of the amount spent on sports.
