Conference Realignment


Board of Control

The Board of Control has the authority to take action about a reasonable conference affiliation and relationship for member high schools.  Reasonable conference affiliation and relationship with member high schools may include total movement of member schools, sport specific relief, and/or scheduling relief.

 Note: While it is not generally the intent to make wholesale changes in existing conference lines. It should be understood that there could be shake-ups in areas where conference affiliation problems are particularly acute. It should also be understood that it may not be realistic to find a solution for every member school.
