OSAA distributes money to
reimburse schools for travel
Oregon high schools are splitting $337,763.10 in playoff travel reimbursement checks from the Oregon School Activities Association for the fall sports seasons. The money being sent out this week represents an increase of nearly $50,000 over the reimbursement from last fall.
Member schools receive travel reimbursement from the OSAA for costs associated with participating in state championship events.
The amount reimbursed to each school is based on a formula that takes into account round-trip mileage, number of participants, number of coaches and length of event.
"We are particularly pleased that both the amount of money and the number of schools receiving travel reimbursement checks has increased this year," OSAA executive director Tom Welter said.
`This is a result of our recent change to six classifications along with the continuing commitment of our generous corporate sponsors. Our association continues to work toward a day when these reimbursement checks cover 100 percent of the costs a school incurs while participating in state championship events."
Oregon high school ski season set to begin this week
