The Athletics and Activities Committee needs your support of all our athletics and activities. We have had reductions every year for the last five years totaling over $200,000. No other district in the Kitsap Peninsula is looking at further cutting athletics and activities for next year.
If we make additional cuts, we will lose students to surrounding districts at the rate of $6000 per student. Additionally, studies show again and again how lower participation in athletics and activities relates to lower attendance, lower grades and more discipline problems. We have already seen lower participation this year with the increased participation fees. The AAC is recommending no cuts or fee increases to activities and athletics in our district for next year.
We need your e-mailed testimonies to the school board detailing the importance of athletics and activities to you and your families.
Thank you for your support.
We, the undersigned, call on the NKSD School Board to accept the AAC's recommendation of no cuts or fee increases to activities and athletics in our district for the 2012-13 school year.
The 2012-13 NKSD Athletics and Activities Committee Recommendation petition to NKSD Citizens was written by Anonymous and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
