Cooperatives and classifications

24 posts in this topic

http://portal.tssaa.org/common/directory/coop.cfm

 

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?

Taxpayer families claiming a right to participate regardless of a school's ability (or desire) to field a team.

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.
