"Sunday practices would never be made mandatory. I can't express enough how important family time is. I would never want any child being benched because they didn't attend a Sunday practice," said Geneti.
Swartz said she and Geneti expect the girl's basketball team to be making a similar request as their games are on a Tuesday/Friday schedule as well.
Some board members expressed concerns over Sunday practices, including the need for custodians. School business administrator Dorothy Nolie said that should not be a problem because the teams would be confined to the gym only.
At Monday night's meeting, Swartz also discussed her 2006-2007 district goals strategies update. She said the goals would enable students to meet state standards and prepare them for life in the 21st century. Swartz and Assistant Superintendent Joe Kavanaugh developed the comprehensive plan in an effort to give the district more direction.
"This plan is always open for growth and modification. We are posting it on our Web site as a way for parents to see what is expected out of our students and staff as well," said Swartz.""
