Do we need timekeepers at sporting events?

Question: Time Keepers at sporting events, from the BOE meeting minutes dated October 18, 2010, they are paid approximately $4,200. Would it be a good idea to consider redirecting the Booster Club and PTO’s objectives, maybe instead of time consuming fund raising events they would consider participating in a different manner, at times, to help our school – PTO and Booster Club members acting as time keepers at games? Saving money is the same as making money.

Answer: The BOE doesn't manage the Booster Club but we can pass the suggestion on. Scoreboard operators are required to have certain qualifications in order to participate in Section II sports. The proposed spending plan makes reductions in the area of score book keeping of approximately $1,800. The distinction is between those operating the scoreboard and those who "keep the book" for the teams.
