No. 4H already has this. It's purely an attempt by gun zealots to get out in front of gun control. This is a dumb idea.

The district must not contribute enough to meet the 9.5 % threshold for single coverage under ACA. It may cost the district henceforth the tax payers. Ask Mr Willert how much the administrative team pays for family health and dental insurance $0!! Quite a double standard which should go away as ACA penalties begin. But word on the street is Willert will fight to keep it even if there are penalties for it.

It's time for Willert to move on.

This is very exciting news! My son would join this team in a heartbeat. He is not into sports, but loves the outdoors (i.e. hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, 4wheeling). His demographic is completely ignored until 9th grade when he can participate in FFA. This would be a great opportunity for him, and other students like him, to get involved in an extra curricular activity that interests them! It would be ideal if FFA could expand to include the middle school students in grades 6th-8th like the trap shooting team.

Sorry, I don't buy the "cost neutral" comment. The school district wanted a referendum for safety improvements, didn't get it, and said they will have to reevaluate the budget to still do the safety improvements. Where in the budget are they going to get the money to cover the additional costs associated with another extra curricular program? Would they have a guarantee that establishing this program will not cost the school district "one penny" and when (not if) it does the program will be eliminated. Wouldn't believe the administration telling me this, may believe it if it was in writing and binding.
