Bad idea. What about the poor families with children that are better in sports than the ones that can afford it? Start having events that will pay for the kind of things that you need to have in your sports games. Sponser a talent show, have dinners, ect. Don`t make it come down to making the kids pay. Ask for donations, I would be the first to donate to the cause. Every child deserves a chance.

This is GREAT! Pay to play. Also, charge enterance fee for the games. If it is necessary to have games. This should have been cut years ago!
Like all things got out of hand.

I agree that every child deserves a chance. It never ceases to amaze me that even the "poor families" have enough money to buy all of the new technology out there i.e. cell phones, ipads, ipods, etc. They even have enough money to buy their "smokes", but they don't have enough money to spend on the necessary items. Some of their problems stem from their inability to properly manage money. What the school board is proprosing seems reasonable to me.

By the way, are the coaches still getting paid? I would like to submit to the school board that they eliminate the coaches' salaries. There are many coaches out there who coach because they love the sport. Now that may not be a popular idea either, but I believe it is one which should carefully be considered, school board.

This wouldn't happen if we had 1 flat tax. Everybody puts money in the pot not just the home owners especially the home owners who have no kids in school.

Don't you worry Eileen, free and reduced lunch kids will be taken care of while once again the middle class must make the hard decision of whether or not their budget allows for it. Keep in mind that those just because those above the poverty guidelines as defined by the government does not afford them any more of an ability to pay for extras in this economy. Not every child will truly have a chance. Just like in society, those at the top can always afford and those at the bottom will be thought of because we are genuinely compassionate people when it comes to unfortunate kids.
This is a hard topic for me because I truly do believe EVERY child should have the same opportunities, but it does burn me up that it is always assumed that those in the middle can afford whatever life throws at them. I am a proud person and hard worker who pays my taxes that help provide the programs for those at the bottom, yet I have to decide whether or not I can afford this for my own child and if I can't, well no one will know or care about my situation.
I can see those who manage to scrape by become less tolerant when their child sees little to no playing time. They will demand more input from the coaches as to what their child is lacking and may even challenge a coaches ability to coach. Paying for the old school style coaching approach will no longer be acceptable so if you thought you had irate parents before, wait till they have to pay. I also think we can expect to see more and more kids drop out providing little to no substitution players which hurts when trying to build a consistent team or when other's get hurt or need a rest. I think the Districts see this as an easy fix because most parents have and do pay for youth sports, but the difference is that every effort is made to ensure their child sees a significant amount of playing time in youth sports. We pay school taxes, then at the gate, and now possibly just to participate. What do we get in return for giving you more of our hard earned money?

I agree with you. It's the poor guy in the middle that pays the price. The PO needs to do a story on just how much assistance the savy welfare people can get using their time and brains. The problem is that it is an entitlement now and anyone that suggests it be cut back is a racist and bigot, even though it is our tax money being doled out. Let's have a public posting who is getting what and how much. There will be some red faces when you find out just who is playing this broken system.

We pay for the stadium and the rest of the school budget from our taxes. If the kids want to play then they should pay. I don't need pay to dress your kids.

The hell with the poor families. I already pay for their clothes, house, health care and everything else. Tell them to get a job and pay for their own stuff like the rest of the middle class.

Activity fees are completely fair, cost families far less than non-school activities, and do not even cover 20% of the total cost of sports.
