    The TSSAA may vote this week on adding cooperative numbers into accepting schools' classification count, in particular sports. Some of the schools have such small numbers it may not make a difference but in some it would. An example is Arts and Sciences with about 450, co-oping in football with Tyner at about 550. The vote this week would be to combine those numbers or give Tyner a 1.8 multiplier. 

     

    My guess, any school that would be moved up will just refuse such students.

    If co-op students are refused I can see them having a case for legal action. Not that I agree with or support such action, necessarily.

    I will admit I don't know as much about this as I would like as it doesn't happen as near as much in this part of the state. What case for legal action do they have?

    You may be talking about a cause of action against the school not fielding a team right?  I'm no legal expert, but seems like they could possibly go against the non-participating school and not the accepting school if they drop the co-op arrangement since it's a voluntary agreement, but that is still probably a stretch.   Watch how fast the accepting schools drop co-op agreements IF the new proposed rule change forces them to move up in classification.  The benevolence will stop.

    Yeah I expect it too but they'd have a case with open or somewhat open zoning continuing.

    That's my thought process as well

    not sure how many kids from other schools people get but i cant imagine there is a lot. If they were football kids, then most likely they would go to a football school. Does this mean seq co has to move up to 3a in soccer? Dont they get kids from whitwell?

    I don't think it would be enough for a push up for soccer which is an even divide between participants now, not total schools, either the 1.8 or combined, whichever is smaller would be used-if it is approved today.
