Let's say Soucie's district model for Pekin holds true. I was wondering what their travel now, to travel in two years, would look like. Like I said, better start having those bake sales now for some charter buses. Also, districts would absolutely nullify any student fans. What parent is going to let their kid be on the road at 1:00-2:00 am in the morning??????

Pekin's travel to Mid Illini schools: 122.4 miles

Pekin's travel to proposed district: 1,118.9(1,177.9 if they take the interstate to Quincy)

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I have a hard time thinking some school's administrations, who are in a very similar pickle as Pekin is in now, won't maybe consider the added expenses(certainly in regards to fuel cost) aren't worth it and since funding is already tight, possibly drop Football or go to Eight man to avoid the new IHSA proposal???

I saw somewhere there is another measure possibly up for vote next year to undo this disaster of a plan.
