Division affiliation varies from sport to sport due to how many schools may offer a sport and how many divisions exist in each sport. Class affiliation is based on the enrollment of all member schools, so AAA is top 1/3 of enrollment, AA is middle 1/3, and A is bottom 1/3. Class affiliation is still used for election purposes, i.e. if your male enrollment is Class AA, your school has a vote for the Boys Class AA representation on your District and the State Board.

The entire membership is split into thirds and assigned a class based on the school's enrollment. The main place you see this come up is on the Board of Directors and the various District boards, where each of the three classes are represented.

The class assignment is different from the Division structures, which are sport specific.

With what I'm seeing, my earlier estimate for girls XC cut-offs is holding fairly steady. I have 310 and up for DI (174 teams, 2 are at 310), 158-309 for DII (174 teams), 157 and less for DIII (173 teams plus several others that had less than a full team in 2018).

Incidentally, Reynoldsburg is not listed in the new batch of enrollment numbers, and a few Cleveland schools have changed names. E3agle Academy used to be JFK, and Cleveland School of Science and Medicine used to be John Hay. I don't think either had XC teams, but if you were looking for them for track and field, that's what names you'll find them under. Lastly, Glenville isn't what it used to be, but the Glenville boys should be safely tucked into DII track and field for the next cycle. Meadowdale girls are also getting near the traditional II-III line for girls track with their enrollment of 158.

Does anyone know why they're posting enrollment numbers minus the senior class?

Seniors will be graduated and gone so they are not counted and 8th graders may make decisions to go to private or other open public schools than their feeder so they are excluded. Grades 9-10-11 are used in the counts in an effort to be as accurate as possible in the fall.

As far as I know, it has always been that way. As for why, I can only speculate that itís because the current seniors will never be competing in the division that these numbers are assigning. It would be great if they could count 8th graders, but there are too many districts who donít have a direct path from middle to high school.

With the amount of kids that do PSEO, college credit plus and attend tech schools during their junior year.....counting them is starting to be dicey.

I wish they would start doing the count every year. The following year this years 11th graders are long gone but still effecting the divisions. With advances in technology it is not has hard as it was in the past.

How so? It is my understanding that there is only one school that pays, or at least gives up funding, for each student engaged in any of these options; however, the student is still enrolled in that school.

Both Boys and Girls and a few other fall sports. I don't know that it will be done at this meeting just going off when they did it two years ago.
