Cleburne County Suspends Athletics

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

 

All sports and extracurricular activities are now suspended at Cleburne County High School… The landmark decision comes after the school’s board members could not come to an agreement for payment for coaches…

 

The anticipated meeting was held at Cleburne County Elementary School at 4:30… Parents and students were in attendance as the decision was announced…  Superintendent Claire Dryden spoke with us about tonight's vote and what it means for the immediate future of sports at the school…

 

Tensions ran high at tonight’s meeting from concerned parents worried about the upcoming season… they also want an answer as to why the board has failed to approve the supplements…

 

According to the Jerry Cash - the chairman of the board- there will be a work session where he expects a deal to get done… He did not say for sure when that session will take place but says he hopes to have it completed by the end of the month… That news was frustrating to most of the parents in attendance…

 

As for the players, activities for the summer will likely have to be conducted on their own as the discussions continue… Board members declined comment on tonight’s vote… TV24 will continue to keep you up to date on this issue…
