As expected, no action taken at OSSAA meeting
The Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association’s Board of Directors met in executive session for nearly three hours Tuesday to go over the proposals from the committee it chanrged to look into public/non-public school issues.
The committee made its recommendations—which included a pair of multiplication factors added to the enrollment of non-public/private schools and an automatic one-year sit out period for Oklahoma students transferring or moving into one of those schools—at last week’s regularly scheduled board meeting.
As expected, the board took no action Tuesday.
They are expected to vote at the April 13 meeting whether or not to send all or part of the proposals to a vote of the membership.
“There was a lot of healthy discussion in the executive session at the last meeting and this one today,” OSSAA executive secretary Ed Sheakley said. “It’ll be up to the board to make a decision at next month’s meeting.”
Several of the proposals would not need a vote of the membership, though the multiplier and change to transfer rules would require the vote. Also requiring a vote would be the addition of a non-public representative to the board, another of the committee’s recommendations.
The 17-member committee was appointed last summer after several other proposals to the board by a group seeking change were voted down.
