Holton schools outsources coaches

HOLTON — Holton Public Schools signed a contract with Professional Education Services Group to have PESG employ its non-teaching coaches. It allows the district to utilize the same people but save money because it will not have to contribute to the school employee retirement system.

"If our non-school employee coaches will not ever take advantage of the Michigan retirement system, why would we pay into it?" Superintendent John Fazer told The Muskegon Chronicle.
