Jim stated:"I wonder if in all this, we might craft a proposal to the school board and neighbors (on this issue). That might make something productive of the forum postings. This might require that we ignore the extremes, but overall, this forum includes a long list of good suggestions, and despite differences, there are a surprising number of points of agreement. It seems a waste if we left this in the archive of the Almanac blog, without productive result.
In the end, the "must-have" is that the school district follow relevant laws. The "nice-to-haves" are that students, family and community get the benefit of accessible practice, games and events, (or not) and this is done with respect and consideration to neighbors. Any suggestions - is there a concise way way to write a proposal that would work for the majority?"
