WOAY – The WVSSAC Board of Control voted 111-26 Tuesday to pass a proposal that would put high school athletics into four classes, instead of three.
This proposal now moves to the Board of Education, who will take a vote following a 30-day public comment period. Should it pass there, the proposal would sit in the Secretary of State’s office for 60 days before becoming official.
This proposal would go into a two-year trial period for only basketball in the 2020-21 school year. There will be no changes made to the 2019-20 academic year.
Only if the basketball trial of four classes is successful would the four-class system then apply to all sports.
