All Southern Utah high schools now in 3A

The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) Board of Trustees met and passed the final consideration of regions for 2011-13.  The final placement of member schools can be found on the UHSAA website at the following link:
A public hearing was held on Wednesday, November 17, to receive feedback from districts, schools and communities on the placement of member schools into regions.  In addition to the hearing, the UHSAA Board of Trustees received numerous emails over the past few months regarding the realignment of member schools. 
The assignment of member schools into regions was finalized on November 18, 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 2011.  The enrollment data upon which the alignment is based will be less than one year old.  A two year, rather than four year, alignment period allows for adjustments more often as enrollments rise and fall at a number of schools.  The UHSAA Board of Trustees retains the responsibility for alignment of all member schools.
