I notice that administrators go to games in the school vehicles as well. Wouldn't it make sense to have them "pitch in" with driving duties? They're going to the same game. It would save the district money and provide relief for band directors, cheer sponsors, and coaches that have taught kids all day. I know that will never happen but a more realistic compromise is to have the district pay for one additional driver. The band staff can split driving the other vehicle(s) so that they have a chance to get mental break. This has worked for me at other schools. Unfortunately I really don't see this problem getting its due attention without some major tragedies.
