Does she have a legitimate complaint? Enough of a complaint for the higher ups in the district (trustee, administrators, etc) to get involved it seems.
I don't have the answer, but it is an interesting question. Is the only responsibility of the athletic director to make sure games are scheduled and kids re on the field? They make sure the kids play so that can get looks from college scouts, but is it their responsibility to actively reach out and attract interest in their kids?
Some athletic directors work harder than others just like teachers. Some have a passion for the kids and fight every day to make sure they get consideration by colleges, others get hired by the principal because they are friends and the athletic director just needs a few more years to get to retirement. They have different styles, but is either, in the guidelines of the district, wrong?
Clearly one is better for the kids than the other, but if the job description doesn't include securing scholarships and attention for kids, perhaps this parent and student are out of luck. It makes me sad, but unless there's a change in our expectations for our athletic directors, then this is what we will continue to have at some of our campuses.
