About this project · How we did it
December 14 - 17, 2003
The newspaper fought legal battles in four counties to obtain records from school districts. Times reporters, including Justin Mayo, constructed a database to investigate coaches using the following: state superintendent disciplinary records since 1992; rosters of certified teachers; statewide dockets of civil and criminal cases; and an AAU directory of coaches for Western Washington. Mayo provided much of the analysis. Reporters also obtained police, criminal and civil court records from nearly all the state's 39 counties.
Contributors to the series also include Cheryl Morningstar, Elizabeth Ridgeway, Ray Rivera, Ian Ith and Miyoko Wolf.
