Thoughts are coming in on the Guilford County Schools new Athletics Policies. Do you have any ideas about modifications for the implementation of these policies?
Here is some of what is being said already about GCS Athletics Policies:
The main reason for the implementation of these policies is to stop the perceived recruiting that is occurring on the high school level. While I do believe that greater oversight of athletics is warranted at this time, I believe that these policies are unfair to both the student athlete and coaches.
We are currently in a Public Comment Period regarding these policies. If you believe that any of the policies would have a negative impact on your child then you may address your concerns to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also write to your Board of Education member that represents your area. I do not believe that any of us should approach these comments with any sense of belligerence. I recommend the following modification to the policies:
The modified proposal would 1. require all coaches, including those on a school faculty, to disclose any potential conflict of interest and 2. seek a waiver from the Interscholastic Athletics Committee by demonstrating that the potential conflict is not affecting the coachâ€™s compliance with GCS policies.
