Packers AD: Bill to address parent, coach relationship not a problem at AHSPublished 10:54am Monday, May 6, 2013
With complaints about coaches from parents on the rise, the Minnesota Legislature is considering a bill that would keep parent complaints from being the sole reason for a board not to renew a coaching contract, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The bill’s purpose is to protect coaches from the possibility of parents interfering with a coach’s time on the job.
Austin High School activities director Lisa Quednow-Bickler said the problem hasn’t been prevalent at AHS.
“It’s not really a problem here,” she said. “We have good communication with all of our coaches and we always go to them first when a parent comes to us.”
