Gilboa and Roxbury students, parents, staff and communities, As we continue to provide our students with the best academic experience, we also need to ensure they have the best opportunities athletically. As the enrollment numbers decrease, we need to develop plans for success. Collaboration of the athletic programs with Gilboa and Roxbury is one solution. On Wednesday August 10 at 6:30pm in the Roxbury cafetorium, there will be a workshop to discuss this possible collaboration. In attendance will be both the Gilboa and Roxbury school boards, the athletic directors and administrators. This workshop will be an opportunity for the communities to learn and ask questions about the collaboration of the athletic programs. If you have any questions, please contact Jack Etter or Jeffrey Bennett Superintendents
Orientation for PreK and Kindergarten
There has been lots of talk about Roxbury and Gilboa merging sports programs. To clarify the process and what has happened so far….. The Gilboa school board asked to meet with our school board to discuss sports collaboration in early July. On Monday, July 25, once we finalized our calendars, two School Board members from Gilboa and two School Board members from Roxbury along with the Superintendents met to discuss the possibility of merging our sports programs. The conversation included a number of topics: 1. As enrollment numbers decrease we are finding a lack in the number of athletes to field programs. 2. Lack of competition 3. The benefits of merging sports 4. The community reaction 5. The coaches’ roles 6. The student reaction 7. Uniforms 8. Field/Court use 9. Need for consistency in policies/procedures…eligibility, attendance, etc. At the conclusion of the meeting, the superintendents were tasked to talk with the fall coaches and AD to gather more information. The next step is for the school board members to report back to their full school boards. Further steps could include: 1. A formal letter from the Gilboa school board requesting the merger 2. Discussion at a school board meeting with the community 3. Discussion with the athletes 4. Discussion in detail all the unforeseen items (for example….uniforms, home field, coaches’ roles, policies, transportation, etc) 5. Receiving Delaware League and Section IV approval 6. Discussions on a full merger or just merge teams with enrollment issues At this point, no decisions have been made by our school board to merge our sports with Gilboa. We will continue to have further discussions.
