Two schools have submitted proposals requesting membership in the association.
Green Hill High School in Wilson County, which is scheduled to open next year, is requesting membership. It is a public school under the Wilson County Board of Education. They are scheduled to open with approximately 1200 students in grades 9-12. If approved, Green Hill will be placed in Division I, Class AAA, District 9 in basketball, baseball, and softball; Class AAA, District 9 in volleyball; Class AAA, District 9 in soccer; Large Class, Section 3 in cross country, track and field, golf, and tennis; Class AAA, Region 6 in wrestling; and District 12 in bowling.
Highland Rim Academy is requesting to rejoin TSSAA for cooperative purposes only. Highland Rim Academy is a small private school in Cookeville with approximately 30 students in grades 9-12. They were members previously but dropped out when the Legislative Council changed the cooperative program agreement language which only allows schools to form agreements within their Division. If approved, they would ask the Board to allow them to seek an agreement with the closest public school.
The Board will also hear a total of three hardship appeals at the meeting.
