The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association is a voluntary, nonprofit, self-supported organization, conceived by school people (teachers, principals, superintendents) and administered by individuals carefully chosen to lead the program. The Association belongs to the member schools and it serves them well in a very worthy purpose.
Legislative authority to make changes to the Constitution and Bylaws is vested in a council of twelve administrators. Council members are school administrators elected — four from each Grand Division of the state — for three-year terms. The Council ascertains the sentiment of the membership toward such changes through annual regional meetings in each Grand Division of the state where proposals are discussed by school principals.
Board of Control
The Board of Control is the executive authority of TSSAA. It is the body which enforces TSSAA regulations, conducts state meetings, authorizes expenditures of TSSAA and registers officials. As with the Legislative Council, the board is composed of twelve school administrators, four from each Grand Division of the state, each serving three-year terms.
The Board of Control employs an executive officer and sufficient administrative and clerical help to execute the policies established by the schools and the Board of Control. At present there are 18 full-time and one part-time support employees.
