The administration of the high school my kids attend has announced a new arrangement for funding extra-curricular activities. Generally understood, rather than each program charging association dues and planning fund-raisers of various types, there will now be an umbrella booster club from which all the activities will be funded. The organization and formula for disbursement decisions is unclear at this point, but as you can imagine this has created a lot of anxiety among various groups, parents, and students.
One of the associations we are part of due to our kids’ activities is meeting later this evening. Hopefully more light will be shed on this deal. And I hope it’s mostly light, not heat, though the two may go together naturally in this case.
