HCPSS MPIA Request #2019-182

Requested Information
In order to analyze how to move school start times with minimal impact to high school sports activities, I request the following information:
For the past 2 school years, 2017-18, 2018-19, and--where possible--estimates for next school year 2019-20:
1. A list of all HCPSS High School sports teams by high school
2. A list of how many students are/were on each team (average for the year or estimate)
3. A list of each team’s practice schedules and location of the practices (
4. A list of each team’s game schedule to include - date, time and location of the games
5. A list of the coaches for each team and if they are a current teacher with HCPSS
It seems like a spreadsheet form makes the most sense, but any machine-readable format is fine.

The attached practice regulations and notes from the HCPSS Athletics Office includes guidelines regarding typical practice times available to HCPSS high school sports teams.
