OHSAA Reduces Competitive Advantage of Ohio Private Schools
Listen to the Story
Ohio’s private high schools, which made up 17 percent of Ohio High School Athletic Association member schools, have won some 44 percent of sports championships over the past 14 years.
OHSAA is now trying to level the playing field.
A recent referendum approved by a majority of high school athletic directors intends to reduce the competitive advantage for private schools who are able to recruit players. Under the new system, “out of district” students will add to a school’s enrollment, meaning they could bump up to a higher division.
The proposal, which had failed for three years in a row, excluded proposed changes like not including enrollment credits for free lunch students and allotting penalties for past success.
OHSAA commissioner, Dan Ross, says another reason the proposal passed because it takes into effect how long a student has attended a private school.
