Chris Davis came before the school board regarding the number of meets for Girls’ Golf. He suggested adding meets possibly with Marshall and Worthington. Mr. Wajer stated that he looks at the number of meets from prior years and the schools that are registered with the State High School league when setting up the schedule. Mr. Wajer is working with Mrs. DeLong on the golf schedule. James Wajer presented transportation and entry fee costs along with insurance and MSHSL information pertaining to the request to add Cheerleading Competition Squad as an extra-curricular activity. A school cannot blend Comp and Cheer together with practice and coaching times. Competition cheerleading is not sanctioned by the MSHSL or covered under their catastrophic insurance and the school’s insurance representative informed Mr. Wajer that it would probably not be covered by the underwriter of the district’s policy. Chair Woldt commented that he agrees it would be a good addition to be able to offer competition cheerleading, but doesn’t feel it would be fair to add a program when current programs have been reduced due to budget cuts. There was further discussion on the Comp Squad being set up as a club like JO Volleyball.
