    If they are in the building, they need to be in positions where they are actually visible and not just "in the building" to save face (ie: classroom being down at the end of one hallway, maybe seeing a handful of his players and/or current student-athletes that could be potential players).

    Personally, I feel that the best teaching position for a HFC is Homebound. All districts have them, some they are full-time positions and others are "extra duty" positions that are after school gigs.

    1) Serves a very meaningful education role.
    2) It gets the HC into every school in the district (meeting with teachers in every building across the district, so that the Homebound teacher can go service those who are in the program at the time) . Every John and Jim from Elementary school-High School will know who Coach so and so is.
    @Iam4thecats mentioned other roles where visibility is at a premium.

    To clarify to CBDV post, in the areas where you see a $$$ and then a # (Example : HEAD BASKETBALL COACH (SENIOR HIGH) $3,500.00 18) the number is extra days, in this case Basketball coach is paid normal teaching contract, plus $3500, plus and additional 18 days added to teaching contract.) Or in simpler English, lol, Lets assume teacher makes $40K normal contract for 185 days in a year.

    Base Salary is $40K / 185 days = 216.21 per day

    Coaching stipend
    Per day rate * extra days (18) = $3891.78
    Stipend $3500.00

    Total Stipend = $7391.78


    CDBV correct me if I am wrong, but this is how most that use the "extra days approach" do it.

    We are all aware that the University of KY is a "public school" that directly or indirectly pays its faculty and coaches with what are technically public tax driven funds, right?

    KY allows "para-professionals" to coach high school sports. This means they do not have to be teachers, they can be professionals in other fields. This, in turn, means they do not have to teach. So I'm gonna say no, (any) coaches shouldn't HAVE to teach and I have no problem with it.
