I would classify every two (as we do now) but based on a "rolling 4 year" amount of SF points.  I think that is what others might be suggesting as well.

I am becoming more and more intrigued with 8 man football.  It would allow schools, such as those mentioned above, to field a team and allow some smaller 1A programs a chance to be more competitive. 

Im rooting for the 140 Mile 3 hour trip from South Put to South Central! At least 1 school will gain an hour with time change on 1 of their trips! Thank you for the hard work and doing this!

That was the original plan from the IFCA but our planned got Bobby Coxed right before the finish line.

Almost April...still no release on classifications.

I am going to go out on a limb and say that there will be NO reclassification at the end of this school year for any sports.

I find it so complexing that the China Virus could have caused so much disruption in everyday life, tasks and just plain ole doing anything. This is probably how life will be from now on.

I still believe that is what should happen. Then start the next cycle after next seasons conclude.

Why don't you want it based on actual butts in the seats?

Not as easy at it seems: 

Little Johnny live in school district. Was enrolled (in person)1st semester - COVID #'s spike over winter break so little Johnny's parents are concerned, and opt for the Online option the next semester. So does he count in the enrollment totals or not?? 

Numbers will be all over the place with the Online options available to students. 

I dare say it gives schools an avenue to "fudge" numbers/play the system a little bit. Which is a scary thought.

Are you telling me that administrators cheat?  I was told over and over on here that they don't.  I'd think that they'd fudge up for $$, not down for a trophy.

Thank you.  Hammond schools begin 4/6 according to NWI news releases.

What # does the IHSAA go by?  September enrollment?  Use those and go.

I'm not sure of any, are you?  Shouldn't it be based on butts in seats.  My school district has virtual students, but they can participate in extracurricular activities.

This is why the IHSAA uses the DOE numbers. They know those numbers are tied directly to funding, which schools are likely to report accurately or on the high end of any uncertainty.  If anything, schools wanted to count anyone and everyone they could this year knowing that some would transfer to a fully virtual school if their home district did not offer a virtual option.  If a student is enrolled in a school, whether they are attending in person or virtually, they count as part of that school’s enrollment.

With an Indiana student ID number tied to the student.

I believe that is what has caused the delay is trying to sort out how to handle the actual number of students for enrollment when you have students all over the place virtually and other wise

 

seems to be a nightmare 

 

I honestly would be ok with everyone staying put (minus success factor) for 1 more year, then start the 2 year cycle then.

To answer your question.  Hammond schools are slotted to go back to in person schooling on 4/6 per NWI news outlets.

Last I knew, Merrillville public schools were still not in person, though that may have changed since the last time I spoke to a friend of mine that teaches at MHS.

I do not believe Gary schools have been in person at all this year.  Maybe East Chicago too.

Sorry if things have changed a bit.

Maybe it's me being stupid but why don't they go by the number of computers the school issues out to their students?  I'm sure there is a list of who has them

Lowell High School has been in and out of quarantine all year long.  Therefore, my son has been online learning all year long.  BTW, he was accepted into Honors College at his university next fall.
