Evaluating high school athletic league affiliation.

Periodically, BISD evaluates its athletic league options. And at the Jan. 9, 2020 school board meeting, we proposed conducting an analysis to explore the differences between affiliation with the Metro League (current) and Olympic League.
 
Key factors being considered include:
  • Instructional Time-  if a change was made, would there be an increase or decrease in the class instructional time (meaning, the time student athletes would need to leave school in order to participate in competitions)?
  • Travel Time - what are the distances between schools; how long does it take to travel to the various schools; what is the cost of travel?
  • Level of Competition - what is the level of competition available between the two leagues; what impact do the various leagues' scheduling have on competitiveness; what is the student enrollment of the schools?
You have the opportunity to share feedback via the online survey (below). Time is of the essence; the surveys close at 5 p.m. on Jan. 21, 2020.
 
Please take the survey based on which best describes you: 
NOTE: BHS coaches and high school students were sent surveys via email.
