The Jessamine County Board of Education’s final stamp of approval will go on the revised athletics handbook if the second reading passes June 25.
Matt Moore, who has served as special-programs director but will move up into the new chief-of-staff position next year, presented the board with final revisions during its work session Monday.
The newest changes add language about the district’s expectations of coaches to maintain clean, sanitary facilities. Failure to complete an end-of-season checklist could result in delayed pay.
The handbook sets no cap on parent out-of-pocket expenses for field trips, though the board had discussed imposing such a number at a previous meeting. Moore said the athletics advisory council had indicated trips would not be expensive enough to merit such a need and that the cost restriction of $100 per day per student — $200 per day per student if the team did not travel the previous year — was sufficient.
