Whether that plan makes it into the committee's proposal to the OSSAA board is still unclear.
Sources said the proposal from the committee is likely to include multiple options for the voting schools to consider. Only the 32 Class 6A schools will be allowed to vote on the proposal, but it must pass the OSSAA board first.
The board rejected a previous proposal by the committee that would have split the current Class 6A into two 16-team classes, 6A and 7A. That proposal was turned down by a vote of 7-6 in December.
Should the board accept the new proposal on Feb. 6, it would then be sent to a vote of the 6A member schools, with only a simple majority needed to pass.
The board and the football coaches are working against the clock. Any changes would have to be made before the next redistricting cycle is set, which will occur in late July to divide districts for the 2014-15 football seasons.
