Board considers stipends for coaching time, not wins

By Ryan Cornell

WOODSTOCK -- High school coaches in Shenandoah County could see an identical reward whether they win or lose championship games beyond conference play, depending on a proposed policy change introduced to the School Board last week.

According to current division policy, coaches of Virginia High School League sports are paid $250 for their teams winning a regional championship and $500 for winning a state championship.

Division Superintendent Jeremy Raley said the revised policy would extend the stipend to all coaches who participate in VHSL regional or state competitions, regardless of the outcome.

"[T]o get that far, they have worked the same amount of days, they put forth the same amount of effort whether they win or lose," he said.

The proposed policy revision states that payment would also be considered to compensate band directors for their additional time spent practicing to support teams competing in VHSL competitions.

The proposal states that the changes might have an increased financial cost to the division, though "it is likely that this increase will be minimal."

Raley, who presented the information item to the school board last week, said it had been shared with the finance advisory committee and policy advisory group. He said the proposed revision will be considered as an action item at the June 17 meeting, to be implemented July 1.
