Sequim: Schools mull “pay to play” plan for athletics, other activities

SEQUIM — Superintendent Mike Joyner will recommend approval of a “pay to play” plan for middle and high school students wanting to participate in sports and other activities.

The proposal will be presented to the School Board at 7 p.m. Monday in Room 4 of the Performing Arts Building on the Sequim High School campus, 601 N. Sequim Ave.

The fees are the result of administrative efforts to make up for an anticipated deficit in the 2001-02 fiscal year operating budget.

Athletic and other activity cuts have also been identified to reduce expenses.

The anticipated shortfall is the result of the double election failure of the district’s three-year, $8.2 million maintenance and operations levy, school officials said.

Joyner will also present the district’s preliminary 2001-02 fiscal year operating budget Monday.
