Welcome to Boones Ferry Primary PSS!  PSS (Parents and Staff for Students) is a non-profit organization that works just like a traditional PTA, but differs in that members are not required to pay dues and are not affiliated with a national organization.  We are an organization dedicated to enriching our children's school experience, creating a community within our school, and contributing to an environment of excellence where our children thrive.

BATTLE PROCEDURES

Player and Team Guidelines

*All students participating must be in grades 3-5 for the current school year.

*Students must participate within the school that they are registered. A school may not form a team consisting of students registered at multiple schools.  

*Each team must have a sponsor from their school who is a school library media specialist, library paraprofessional, or other school staff member. Ours is the fabulous Margaret Wattman-Turner!

*Composition of the team members may not change once the regional battles have started.

Regional competitions do not require participation in a district/county/ESD competition. State battles do require participation in the regional competitions.

*Each school may send only one team, per division, to the regional competition (grant recipients must attend and compete in the regional competitions).

*Each region will send its top team in each division to the state competition. Some regions will be allowed to send more than one team to the state competition, depending on the number of registered teams competing at the regional competition. Regional managers will be notified of the number of teams their region is allowed to send to state each year before they host their regional competition.

*Teams are usually made up of four members, with one optional alternate, for a total of five members. However, no more than four students may participate in any given battle.

*There may be only one alternate. This alternate may take the place of another player for a battle. When the alternate is used, the alternate must remain in competition for the entire battle. No other substitutions may be made during a battle.

*No other person may assist in answering any question directed to a team, or any challenge decisions, including the team’s coach. The Moderator will disqualify a team determined to be receiving outside help.

*In the event of a situation that is not specifically addressed in the OBOB rules, the decision of the Moderator/co-Judge(s) in the room for that battle is final.

*The OBOB Committee has the authority to refuse to allow a team to participate in the event of unsportsmanlike behavior or other extenuating circumstances.
