Class Shuffle: KSHSAA Releases Classifications
The Kansas High School Activities Association released enrollment numbers on Wednesday, including the latest movement in all six classes, and the football reclassifications for the 2020-21 seasons.
The only schools affected by enrollment numbers for this school year will be Lakin, which will be a Class 3A school, moving up from 2A; and Meade, which drops down from Class 2A to Class 1A. Each sport will post classifications before the start of each season, based on Board Approved Policy, according to a release from the KSHSAA.
In football, three teams will be affected next season. Syracuse moves from Class 1A to Class 2A, Meade drops from Class 1A to 8-man Division I, while Greeley County will move from 8-man to 6-man, beginning next season.
There are 32 schools in each of the state's three largest classes, which Classes 3A and 2A are capped off at 64 teams each. The remainder of the schools, all with student populations of 108 and below, are classified as Class 1A.
The numbers used to reclassify were based on enrollment of schools in grades 9-11 as of September 20th.
