To better serve the membership, the SCHSL is following the decision made during the 2019 South Carolina Athletics Administrators Association spring conference:  to direct the South Carolina High School League’s staff to conduct the Reclassification/Realignment of Schools process for the 2020-2022 years.  As part of the process, a Reclassification/Realignment Guidelines Committee has been created.  The purpose of the committee is to determine the parameters and guidelines that are to be used by League staff during the process.

There are two meeting dates scheduled to address this process:
