FINANCIAL IMPACT (Budgeted:  Yes)
Funds in the amount of $108,404 will be available in the Athletics Department Budget. For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 6406. As of October 3, 2017, the remaining balance less encumbrances for this line item equaled $141,029.
EVALUATION
Schools have a communication method that serves as the evaluation process of officials on a game-by-game basis.  If coaches and/or administrators have any issues with officials, the school will send a written report and/or video evidence to the Athletics Department regarding the issue.   The Athletics Department will then communicate with the leadership of the officials association, or a meeting will be conducted to address any concerns.
