Several board members voiced their displeasure with the idea, but it was just an informational item and won't be up for a vote until the next meeting.
After the discussion the board approved the consent agenda which includes the waiver of building rental fee, and for an overnight trip. The board also approved the purchase of talk and listening kits and to amend a board policy. The board then approved the adoption of a new board policy that evaluates coaches and sponsors
The board will next meet on Monday, April 26.
