Minnesota parent legislation to aid coaches
It’s just one simple sentence, but for Minnesota high school coaches, it could be the difference between remaining on the bench and sitting in the stands.
Added to an existing statute on coaching contract renewal will be the following: “The existence of parent complaints must not be the sole reason for a board to not renew a coaching contract.”
Passed 78-56 in the Minnesota House of Representatives and 41-26 in the Senate on Sunday, Gov. Mark Dayton will sign the bill today.
