Suggestion #17:[]

If cuts must come, phase out restrictions. Honor immediate coops options for those already on teams today.[]

For example, if a specific sport within a coop is made to be no longer an option for students at one school, diminish it. Allow those on the team to continue. But, prevent new 9th grade students from joining.

Example 1: If golf is removed as an option for the Obama students due to the costs, then an immediate coop with Allderdice is prudent for existing golfers.

Example 2: If football is removed as an option for the Obama students due to the costs of the coop, allow the ones in grades 10, 11 and 12 as of 2014 to continue to play football with U-Prep if they get their own transportation beyond central PPS budget payments. Then in 2015, only those in 11 and 12 get to be on the coop team. In 2016, only 12 grade participants could be on that team.

Otherwise, if players are forced to transfer out of a school because of cuts, they might transfer out of PPS to Woodland Hills or some other non PPS school.
