The CHSAA Board of Directors has approved football alignment for the next two-year cycle.

This alignment has been worked on by members of the football committee for more than a year now, and the representatives on that committee have sought and incorporated feedback from member schools throughout it. The final step in the process was the Board meeting this week, which included the potential for schools to appeal their proposed alignment.

The following criteria was used to create the alignment in all classifications:

  • Enrollment numbers
  • Competitive balance within each conference
  • Geography
  • Risk minimization
  • Success/non-success
  • School participation percentage
  • Regular season/postseason implications
