Supplemental Contracts--New Restrictions, New Challenges.
Walz, William R.; Berndt, Kenneth
This transcript of an oral presentation reviews a Kansas Supreme Court decision concerning supplemental contracts (the Hachiya decision), which held that coaching is always performed under a supplemental contract no matter when the assignment occurs. Four previous decisions regarding coaching and contracts are discussed: (1) Smith v Board of Education, Illinois 7th Circuit Court, 1983; (2) Slockett v Iowa Valley Community School District, Supreme Court of Iowa, 1984; (3) Swager v Board of Education, Kansas Court of Appeals, 1984; and (4) Unified School District 241 v Swanson, Kansas Court of Appeals, 1984; facts in the Hachiya case were that coaching was performed during the last (seventh) period of the day. When the coaches involved resigned their coaching duties, the board offered them a six-sevenths contract for the ensuing school year. The board decision was upheld by the district and appeals courts, but the Kansas Supreme Court concluded that regardless of when the assignment occurs the person assigned to coach does so under a supplemental contract. The court also held that the teachers had attained full-time tenure status even though one-seventh of their contracts involved supplemental duties. Questions raised by this case regarding supplemental duties tied to curricular activities are considered. (DHP)
