Bookmark and Share

The N.C. High School Athletic Association board of directors is expected to investigate new ways to return money to member schools when it meets in Chapel Hill in December.

Charlie Adams, the NCHSAA executive director, said the first thing on the agenda during the winter meeting will be discussing how the association can help schools financially.

The NCHSAA plans to provide automated external defribrilators  (AED) to the 131 member schools that do not have the life-saving devices by December. The NCHSAA will cover $190,000 of the $200,000 cost with the remainder coming from a grant.

Adams said the association will look into increasing reimbursements for playoff travel, meals and accomodations.

The NCHSAA also is setting up a grant program to promoted citizenship, sportsmanship and character.
