USE OF NON-SCHOOL PERSONNEL IN COACHING POSITIONS Policy Code: 7450
Head coaching positions for all sports (varsity and junior varsity) offered at both the high school and middle school levels will be filled preferentially by employees of the school system. Persons who are not employees of the school unit may be used as coaches if prior approval has been granted by the board of education. The principal will ensure that the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act are followed for any non-exempt school employee who is assigned a coaching duty.
