Most board members stated that it would make more sense to reexamine the proposed pay-to-play fees after Tolland voters approve a budget and determine the school district's funding amount. Currently, fees are proposed to rise to $325 for varsity and JV sports and $225 for middle school sports.
Tolland resident Beth Whitman said that parents were told at a Tuesday meeting with Superintendent William Guzman and several board members that the board would provide a new, lower number Wednesday night.
