NR School Board approves non-extension of Schradle

Body: 

The New Richmond School Board approved a motion for non-extension of the extra-curricular contract for 2018-2019 for Ryan Schradle, who has been the girls head basketball coach at the high school for the last several years. The motion, according to District Administrator Patrick Olson, carried 7-0.

The New Richmond district office conference room was packed with community members who came out to support Schradle during the open forum portion of the school board's Monday, May 21 regular meeting. In addition to Schradle, several community members addressed the board and expressed their desire to see Schradle continue as the girls basketball coach given all the good he has done for the program and the community as as whole.

Olson said the district will follow its hiring process to find a new girls basketball coach for the 2018-2019 season.
