Pawnee City School Board seeking input on future of football

Pawnee City School

(KLZA)-- The Pawnee City Board of Education will meet in special session Tuesday evening at 6:30 in the school cafeteria to receive feeedback from the public about the options for the Pawnee City High School football teams for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Parents and patrons of the Pawnee City School District are encouraged to attend the meeting and express their opinions. 

The Pawnee City School Board will be making a decision in the next month about the programs future.  The options are to co-op with Lewiston and play 8-Man football;  return to 8-man football as a standalone team  or remain a 6-man standalone team for the next two year cycle. 

The Nebraska School Activities Association deadline for two schools to declare a football co-op for the next two-year cycle is November 1. The NSAA deadline for a team to declare if it will play 8-man or 6-man football is November 30. 

The Lewiston School Board sent a letter to Pawnee City in June inquiring about the possibility of discussing a shared Junior High and High school extra-curricular activities program with the Pawnee City School.

Pawnee City would remain eligible for the 6-man playoffs for the next two-year cycle even though the current count of boys in grades 9-11 would be above the NSAA maximum for playoff eligibility of 27.

Pawnee City  Board members will not engage in conversation with,  or answer questions from the public during the meeting.  

If a football cooperative agreement were reached,  the combined team would be playoff eligible as an 8-man team, likely in Class D1 for the next season.
