The Bowling Green school district will add pay to participate this fall to all of its extracurriculars.
The announcement came at tonight's school board meeting.
According to Superintendent Ann McVey, the new policy will apply to any team, club or organization that requires a coach or adviser that gets paid a supplemental wage.
The public is invited to the next board meeting on July 16 at 5 p.m. to discuss pay to participate.
McVey did not have any information at tonight's meeting on what students will be asked to pay.
The move is a direct result of the last two defeats of ballot requests for additional revenue from taxpayers.
According to district Treasurer Rhonda Melchi, the school system is looking at a $3.1 million spending deficit in June 2015.
