... to organize, develop and control an interscholastic athletic program that will promote the ideals of its membership and the opportunities for member schools’ participation. emphasize interscholastic athletics as a partner with other school activities in the total education process, and to formulate and maintain policies that will cultivate the high ideals of good citizenship and sportsmanship. promote uniformity of standards in interscholastic athletic competition, and prevent exploitation by special interest groups of the school program and the individual’s ability.

All committees are expected to maintain a diverse membership through broad based membership selection procedures.
