Competitive balance passed by a majority vote of more than 800 school administrators in 2014, but wasn’t implemented until the fall of 2017. It’s a landmark attempt to “level the playing field” between private and public schools.
It’s based on a numerical formula that accounts for student enrollment, residence and where a student began the seventh grade. All schools are required to claim one bordering school district where most of its students reside. Private schools have maintained that is unfair, because many of their students are from multiple school districts.
Competitive balance affects only football, soccer, girls volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball.
