The Utah High School Activities Association is doing everything possible to gather public input on the always controversial subject of realignment.
The organization’s Board of Trustees must make a final decision for the 2015-2017 seasons in November. It may include a new football-only system where success in the state tournament will be placed in a complicated formula. Under the proposal, successful teams could be placed in a higher classification despite studenbody numbers while struggling schools might drop a classification.
The maximum adjustment based on football success will be 15 percent up or down in student numbers.
The UHSAA has been taking comments on the proposed alignment changes on its website www.UHSAA.org. It has now scheduled a public meeting at 2 p.m. August 7 at its Midvale office at 199 E. 7200 South to take comment on the proposal.
The Board of Trustees will finalized the football proposal at its meeting on August 28. Realignment is scheduled to be completed in November.
