  • Got a problem? Occasionally we get calls or e-mails asking us to tell local schools what to do. We find ourselves referring almost all cases back to the local level because we have little authority with regard to season contests. (We do have authority with regard to post-season play.) So, if you have a problem or question, start with your school. Sport related questions, start with the AD. If not resolved satisfactorily, move up the chain: next to the principal, then to the superintendent of schools and finally to the school board. Thanks. Ken Page, VPA Executive Director
