Q and A Brownsburg AD Kelli Waggoner

(Continued)

It’s very difficult and that’s been a challenge from the beginning. I’m not the only one. The band department, the choir department, the extra-curricular activities; all of us have had to tighten our belt and figure out how to do that. Ways we’ve figured out is look at making sure all of our teams in the varsity, junior varsity and freshman level travel together on the same bus. Before you may have a freshman team going one direction and a junior varsity and varsity team going another. It’s sitting down and literally working with our CFO and COO, which we’ve done to look at a true schedule of buses that are taken and cutting. We now have what we call a travel squad for football. We’ve taken three buses to away games over the last three or four years because of our numbers, which are great that they’ve continued to increase. But with that’s a cost. Coach Comer and I’ve worked on this and they’re going to have a travel squad where they’ll take two buses instead of three to an away game. For him, I think he sees it as helping with competition during the week so it’s good for him and may increase the efficiency of his practices. We’ve had to do that. We’ve had to take some of the freshmen teams and reduce the numbers we can keep on a freshmen team or a lower level team because they may use a smaller bus, or an activity bus, as opposed to a yellow bus where a bus driver is needed. It’s a challenge, but as anything I think it’s a good challenge because it continues to make us look at things the way we organize them and if we are being consistent with things across all genders of sports. My efficiency is making sure we’re doing it the best possible way that we can.
