  1. This is similar to the Kankakee Valley School Board in Northwest Indiana.
  2. To me coaching is still a big factor. I want my coaches to be in the building working with my kids in the classroom and on the field/court. However, when I have few candidates I go with who will be the best for the kids in the classroom first. I cannot speak of other administrators, but I can see through a dog and pony show. I use my network to find out more about candidates. Just like when I apply for a job I reach out to people I know who work at a school, or have connections to the school to get a better picture of things. Coaching has allowed me to develop a large network and it is helpful when making a hire. As for people getting passed over, I know the feeling firsthand, every administrator has their way and what they are looking for.
  3. Good points, I am one of those former coaches/teachers that moved into administration. I value the teachers that coach and I agree on their impact. The fact is there is a shortage of teachers. We try to hire the best teachers and many do not coach. It is unfortunate, but when I have 3 candidates for an open position we take the best teacher regardless if they coach. That has forced us to look for coaches from outside the school. I do not like it and hope things change soon.
  4. Congratulations Coach Prescott. He will work hard to get the program in the right direction.
  5. As a society we are not very patient, if things do not improve overnight then we want change. I still believe it takes close to 7 years to build a program. You have to get the youth program on board, and the middle school teams implementing your system. It takes time and if you do not have enough success they pull the plug or a school board member comes after you. Coaching is tough and the days of seeing one coach at a school for a long period of time is not common anymore.
