According to a Post Register article, Skyline has over 1,359 students attending. I'm not sure how many are at I.F. Shouldn't Skyline be playing up a classification? I.F. supposedly moving back down after two years in 5A. School District 91 has projected growth that puts both schools at 5A. Just seems strange to me.

I feel the state should take out of district students into account. I know there are some states that count the out of district students as 2 instead of 1. This could potentially move some of the schools who "recruit"/accept transfer students up a division.
Seems to me that everyone thinks it should change but when the plan to change increases every ones travel it suddenly is not a good plan. The last good option that came through was a student pop/economic score type deal. It passed the first vote but not the 2nd. Why do you do that? So the IHSAA board has time to go talk to all there buddies and come back and vote different? Why the hell have a board?
I'd like to see what they do in Hawaii here. Where if you win a state championship, you move up a level and if you finish in the bottom 3 teams, you move down. Only problem with this is there are not nearly as many high schools in 4A/5A Idaho as there are in Hawaii.
But I'd like to see previous years accomplishments be calculated into it. Kinda like Mountain Home petitions to drop to 3A should be allowed as they are not and have not really been competitive at the 4A level.
This all may backfire kinda like Emmett dropping to 3A for 2014-2015 and winning a state championship before moving back up to 4A.
1280 plus is considered 5A. Anything below is 4A. It's a flawed system in my opinion and I wish the IHSAA would drop 5A altogether and combing the 4A into two districts.
What's the cutoff for 5A?
