Bernadette Gately told the Dallas School Board at its Jan. 16 meeting that her son, Bill, a senior, had been unfairly benched by the football coaching staff.

“He had originally been benched for one game for a specific issue,” said Gately, “and I fully supported the coaching staff at that time, but I don’t understand why he has not returned to the field.”

She said her son had played faithfully for the last three years at a starter.

“At the last game,” she said, “he wasn’t even announced.”

Gately said she brought the issue to the board first, before considering legal action.

In another matter, residnt Tom Dombroski questioned the use of propane as a fuel source for district school buses. He said its use was a safety concern and he would look into it further, reporting back to the board.

Dombroski inquired into the installation of strobe lights on the buses and was reassured by the board that the lights will be in place by late Setpebmer.

Superintendent Frank Galicki said the parents advisory group will resume meeting in October.

The next regular meeting of the school board will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 14.
