  1. So happy about this! Our kids need our support and cheers when playing their favorite sport. Plus the older kids need film, college coaches are asking for it. Great news for our kids.

  2. “Our kids need our support and cheers …”

    Why do we not hear parents clamoring to sit in their children’s classrooms to support and cheer on the kids’ academic endeavors?

  3. better not see a teacher there

    Will be good for parents to support the kids.

    But I’d better not see a teacher at a sporting event since they can’t manage to teach…

  4. Thanks to Stan for posting this. But I am so disappointed that it took an intense public outcry to get DCSD to release these Spectator Guidelines.

    Soccer and Lacrosse seasons began last week. These Spectator Guidelines should have been published and ready to go when the seasons began. Without a public outcry I wonder when these Spectator Guidelines would have slithered out.

    The DCSD Athletics Department includes 3 employees who make $104K to $138K, and 3 employees who make $68K to $76K.

    We should expect better from these employees, who are paid so much more than most of our teachers or coaches.

    I’m insulted as a teacher who HAS BEEN TEACHING the ENTIRE time. I’m also saddened that you would make a statement that would discourage seeing a teacher.

  6. And if you do see a teacher there, what you gone do about it?
