Title
Contract/Field Trip - Viera High Football game vs Allen High School in Allen, Texas

Discussion

The Viera High Football Team received an invitation to play an out of state football game against Allen High School in Allen, Texas on Friday, September 4, 2015.  The team consisting of approximately 44 students along with approximately 16 employees and coaches will travel by bus on Wednesday evening, September 2nd and return on Sunday, September 6th.   There will be no expense to the district or school (see contract details).  A detailed itinerary will be developed after Board Approval.  Students will miss two (2) days of school for the trip to Texas.

Each high school was encouraged to maximize revenue due to elimination in funding and concerns for the budget.  The game will provide students with national exposure that can generate scholarships to colleges throughout the country.  The team will have the opportunity to hear from two college representatives in the area as well as a motivational speaker.  Students will have individual tutoring from a team of coaches that represent certification in all core subject areas.  Coaches will insure that all assignments are completed.  This will be a regular season game at NO EXPENSE to the students, school or district



Recommendation
Approve the contract and request for the Viera High Football Team, approximately 44 students and 16 adults to play a regular season high school football game against Allen High School in Allen, Texas.  The team will travel from September 2-6  with the game being played on Friday, September 4, 2015.
