Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtues consistently. You can't be consistently kind or fair or humane or generous, not without courage, because if you don't have it, sooner or later you will stop and say, "The threat is too much. The difficulty is ...too high. The challenge is too great. ~ Maya Angelou

Why are we paying a private videographer to record football games?

Why are these expenses charged to the general fund (199) instead of to the athletic fund (183)?

In reviewing district public information since 2003, we've discovered that Eanes ISD often codes athletic expenditures to other funds (such as General Fund 199) instead of Athletics 183. In the past, we've found "Chicks Dig Chaps" t-shirts for all the athletes, chartered buses galore, football equipment, clothing for coaches and more -- all related to athletics and charged instead to the general fund or petty cash, or other funds. By doing so, the district reduces the expenditures (on paper) for athletics.  Related links:
