Secondary Sports Task Force

The Secondary Sports Task Force (SSTF) was created in 2012. Its original mission was to:

  • Analyze the past two seasons of high school football and upcoming high school basketball season to determine positives/challenges of these two sports being high school only sports for 9th-graders
  • Determine next steps and potential transition plan for junior high sports
  • Submit the transition plan to the School Board for review in March/April 2013
  • Review Title IX compliance

The task force developed a four-year transition plan, using the following criteria to make the decision of when each sport would move to the high school:

  • Cost (addition of coaches, uniforms, transportation)
  • Facilities (are there enough fields, courts and gym space to make the move)
  • Ease of transition to the high school

The task force only makes recommendations, it does not make decisions. It consists of 12 members. The parent/community members are appointed by the superintendent through an application process.

Meeting Schedule 

The SSTF meets three times a year, once during each sports season.
