WIAA schools face interesting proposals
Member schools will be asked to vote on two significant proposals that impact tournament status and conference realignment at the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association's annual meeting April 16 in Stevens Point.
On the ballot is a petition by a "segment of member schools" that would establish a 1.65 multiplier to the enrollments of all private, religious and independent schools for tournament placement. That formula could result in some private schools being pushed up to a higher division.
Also on the table is a proposal to shift authority and responsibility for conference formation and realignment from the WIAA Board of Control to the member schools. Realignment has been a big issue throughout the state, with the WIAA recently approving a massive plan for Central and Northeastern Wisconsin schools to take effect with the 2015-16 school year.
