Sorry for taking so long to respond to your post. Below is background information.
On April 1, 2010, the “Lakewood Athletics – Building for Excellence Committee” presented to Dr. P. Joseph Madak its “Recommendations for the Continuous Improvement of the Lakewood City Schools Athletic Department and Recreation Department Programming.” The following individuals served on the Committee, and a copy of their “Report to the Superintendent” is attached:
Both Board Members Favre and Kamkutis served on the Committee so I am sure they will jump in and answer any specific questions you may have about that process.
Superintendent Madak then provided the Committee’s Report to the Board for consideration.
On May 3, 2010, the Report was first discussed by the Board. See http://www.lakewoodcityschools.org/docs/BoardDocuments/Min%201stBd%20Mtg%20050310.pdf
On May 17, 2010, the Report was again discussed and, I believe, this was the first meeting where Board Member Favre introduced his “Continuous Improvement of the Lakewood City School Athletic Department and Recreation Department Programming Resolution” for the Board to consider. That Resolution is attached. See, also, http://www.lakewoodcityschools.org/docs/BoardDocuments/May%20Agenda%20-%202nd%20Board%20Meeting-0.pdf
As Board Member Favre prepared the Resolution, I am sure he will jump in and answer any specific questions you may have about that Resolution – beyond what it says.
On June 7, 2010, the Board adopted the Resolution. See http://www.lakewoodcityschools.org/docs/BoardDocuments/June%20Agenda%20-%20lst%20Board%20Meeting.pdf
As you can see from the Resolution itself, the Board is expecting a high degree of accountability from the Administration with respect to both the Athletic and Recreation Departments.
Based upon the recommendation of the Committee and the Administration, the Board also felt that it was in the best interest of the Lakewood City Schools to leave the Northeast Ohio Conference and submit an application to join the West Shore Athletic Conference effective the 2012-2013 school year so that is mandated in the Resolution as well. I agree.
Our application was submitted as directed and I first learned of our acceptance into the West Shore Athletic Conference from July 8, 2010 news reports. See http://www.cleveland.com/sun/all/index.ssf/2010/07/lakewood_high_school_ranger_at.html
