Chatfield Schools discuss Athletic Department reform


By Mitchell Walbridge

Posted in Chatfield Education

In a little over one month Chatfield’s athletic and activities director, Dan Schindler, has made significant changes in the management of oversight of the Chatfield School District’s extracurricular programs. Along with the help of school board activities committee members and administrators, a coaching evaluation system is in effect and modifications to the activities have been approved.

In a report to the school board at the July 16 regular monthly meeting, Schindler explained that the coach evaluations are just a piece of the puzzle that will improve the district’s programs and will help the coaches themselves. Schindler said that there were holes in the communication between coaches and administrators, holes that will be attempted to be patched with the new guidelines and oversight practices.

New protocols will require pre-season and post-season meetings with all of the head coaches. Evaluations will be discussed with coaches at the post-season meetings after observation is made during the playing seasons. Coaching development plans will also be developed with coaching staff. Coaches will also be sending out weekly updates to parents.

Athletic and activities reform in Chatfield expands to more than just the coaches, however. A meeting with parents and athletes is set for July 24 at 6:30pm. This will give parents and athletes a chance to meet with the athletic/activities director and their coaches. Also, parents and activities participants will have opportunities to complete surveys on their extracurricular experiences.
