West Allis district will consider fair play in coaches' pay

April 9, 2013

The West Allis-West Milwaukee School District will take another look at the fairness of pay for coaches and team advisers.

Some School Board members Monday questioned why the coaches for the pom program make half as much as football coaches. The pom season is year-round, summer practices are four to five hours daily and the pom program involves more students, they said.

The board was considering all coaching and advising contracts and noticed the apparent disparity.

The staff also will come back with information on whether some teams with low participation should be combined.
