Sanger ISD turns in snapshot SHS enrollment, forecast to drop Class 4A Division II

November 3, 2019

 

Last Friday’s high school enrollment numbers have extra significance because the University Interscholastic League factor’s that number into its district realignment process in early 2020.

Based on the enrollment snapshot, UIL groups schools into classifications that range from the 1A, the smallest number of students, to 6A, the largest. Schools within each classification then are divided into smaller districts for academic, athletic and fine arts competitions.

The University Interscholastic League’s biennial realignment is just more than three months away and last week, schools across Texas were  required to send in their enrollment numbers. The “Snapshot Day” was Friday, Oct. 25 and on that day schools record their enrollment and then send it to the UIL, who then begin the process of realignment for 2020-2022.

Sanger High School’s snapshot was 757 students on Friday, October 25.  It was 844 students in October 2017.   Expect Sanger to drop from Class 4A Divsion I (big school), to Class 4A Division II (smaller school) the next two years.  The cutoff for Division II was 505-789 students in the 2018 realignment.  Those numbers usually don’t fluctuate that much.  The Division I was 790-1149 high school students.  

If these numbers (see 2018-2020 realignment cutoffs on the back page) stay close, Sanger most likely will be in a football district with Aubrey, Bridgeport, Krum, Graham, Iowa Park and Vernon.  All of those schools are predicted to remain Division II schools.  Other schools that could be in the picture for Sanger are Caddo Mills, Dallas Lincoln, Dallas Roosevelt, Farmersville, Nevada Community and Sunnyvale.  But more than likely, Aubrey would move that way and Sanger would go with the west schools, being on the I-35 line.  But,  with any realignment, there will be a lot of social media and message board chatter, but 99.9 percent of it is speculation because the realignment secret is better kept than any secret in Washington D.C.

Sanger’s current Division I (seven-team) district is Argyle, Celina, Paris, Paris North Lamar, Melissa and Anna.  North Lamar is expected to drop to Division II, as well with a 741 high school enrollment snapshot.  All the others will remain Class 4A Division I.   See area notable snapshot figures that were turned in last week to the UIL, compiled by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine’s website.  

One thing is for sure. Conference cutoffs will be announced in December and realignment is scheduled for early February of 2020.
