TSSAA Board of Control Agenda – July 2016

July 27, 2016
Hermitage, TN

  1. Roll Call
  2. Division I and Division II Classificiation
    The TSSAA Board of Control will vote on the number of classes in Division I and Division II schools will have in each sanctioned sport for the next four year cycle. That classification period will begin with the 2017-18 school year and run through 2020-21.
  3. Division I Multiplier
    The Board will need to decide on whether or not they play to use a multiplier for those independent schools that decide to participate in Division I. Currently, all DI independent school enrollments are multiplied by 1.8. Board action states that no school can be moved up more than one class due to the multiplier.
  4. District and Regional Alignment
    The Board will need to decide on whether or not they want the state office staff to set District/Regional Alignments ans publish them when they are finalized. If so, this will be done prior to the November Board of Control meeting, giving schools an opportunity to appeal if they feel they have a legitimate reason. This would also be in advance of the “Scheduling Meetings” that must take place immediately after the November meeting.
  5. Reevaluation of Enrollments
    The Board has traditionally required the state office to reevaluate every member school’s enrollment figures after two years during the four year classification cycle. Schools that have a 20% decrease/increase in enrollment which causes them to move to another class are moved at that time. The Board needs to decide if this is still the direction it wants to go.
