The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) Board of Trustees met and passed a first consideration of regions for 2015-17. The initial placement of schools can be found at <a href=”http://www.uhsaa.org/realignment/2015-17Regions.pdf”>http://www.uhsaa.org/realignment/2015-17Regions.pdf</a>.
A public hearing will be held on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, at 6:30 pm in an attempt to get feedback from the various districts, schools and communities on the placement of schools into regions. The public hearing will be held at the UHSAA offices (199 East 7200 South) in Midvale. Those schools considered tied between two classifications may discuss classification placement. All other schools may discuss region placement. In addition to the hearing, the UHSAA Board of Trustees is seeking public comment regarding region placement of schools through <a href=”http://www.uhsaa.org/realignment”>http://www.uhsaa.org/realignment</a>.
The assignment of schools into regions will be finalized on December 4, 2014, by the Board of Trustees, allowing time for schools and regions to organize and schedule for the two-year alignment period.
The first contests under the new alignment will take place the fall of 2015. The enrollment data upon which the alignment is based will be less than one year old.
The UHSAA Board of Trustees retains the responsibility for alignment of all member schools.
