An alternative draft that has been developed by NCHSAA staff has now been distributed to the membership and is posted on the NCHSAA web site.
The membership now has two drafts to study in preparation for the January Realignment Regional Meetings. All realignment information may be found on the NCHSAA web site by going to the front page, clicking on the drop down menu Select A Topic and then choosing Realignment.
Schools have already received information on how to present their suggestions to the Realignment Committee in addition to the meetings in January.
The initial draft from SAS is also posted. SAS created the computer models using the following criteria: six to eight schools in a conference, geography (longitude and latitude), and no split conferences. The alternative draft does include some split conferences, particularly to address some areas where a straight one-classification conference appeared to have some travel issues.
