Meetings regarding Policy 915, Booster Clubs were held during March and April 2018 with representatives from Booster Clubs and members of other parent organizations. These meetings were facilitated by RHS Principal Mr. Dan Bechtold and RHS Athletic Director Mr. Michael Friel. A draft of the proposed Booster Club Policy was presented and discussed with representative feedback for recommended changes to the Policy and accompanying Administrative Regulation (AR).
Although the feedback meetings were expected to be completed prior to the Spring Break, inclement weather and power outages delayed the process. As a result of these delays, and based on the valuable feedback from the booster representatives and parent organizations, it was decided the draft of the Policy was in need of more substantial revisions.
In order for administration to make the necessary changes, it was originally recommended the draft of the Policy be brought forward to the Policy Committee at the May meeting instead of April as per the initial timeline. However, after further discussions among district staff involved in the development of the policy, it was decided to instead host an informational session on Title IX and topics influencing the creation of the policy at the May 8 Policy Committee meeting. The first draft of the policy will thus be introduced at the June Policy Committee meeting.
