    Potential coaches may possess three different backgrounds:

    1) A person who holds a valid certificate to teach physical education in New York State may coach any sport in any school.

    2) A teacher certified to teach in New York State in an area other than physical education may also be appointed to coach.

    3) A person who does not hold a current New York State teaching certificate may be appointed as a temporary coach only if there are no certified teachers available with experience and qualifications to coach the team. Effective January 1, 2014 anyone applying for a temporary coaching certificate must have completed a State Education Department (SED) approved Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) anti-bullying workshop.

    Regardless of the experience or teaching certificates a person may have, State Education Law requires that a person appointed as a coach of an interschool athletic team must have:

    1) Valid First Aid for Coaches
    2) Adult CPR/AED certification
    3) Fingerprint clearance from the NYSED
    4) Concussion in Youth Sports Training

    The hiring of coaches will be in accordance with:
    1) Regulations of the Commissioner of Education Section 135.4 (c) (7) (i) (c) and Section 135.5
    2) Schedule D, Section D.1 and E of the current Royalton-Hartland Teachers' Association Agreement
