July 1, 2018 update: Board of Education unanimously rejects proposal at June 12 meeting. Agenda item P-4 – shown here – restricts equipment exclusively to Princeton Public Schools, no use by any facility user group, whether nonprofit, for-profit, or municipality.
May 7, 2018 update: the proposal was submitted. The Board of Education will respond by June 21. The letter is still open to sign.
As many of you know, there have been organized track and field events at Princeton High School, under the auspices of Princeton Athletic Club, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. To go further, it is expected that the Board of Education will have to review and approve. We live in a democracy, and community support makes a difference.
The goal is to use the track and field facility at Princeton High School to conduct community track and field meets, offering the broadest range of events, open to the widest range of ages and abilities, as practicable to do in a safe, fun, fair manner.
This includes all the running events, as well as all of the other components of track and field: hurdles, throws, including discus and javelin, and jumps, including high jump, and, at some time, pole vault. Putting the full program together may be a project that extends over some time.
