WIAA releases final classificationsJanuary 23rd, 2012 at Mon, 23rd, 2012 at 5:34 pm by Megan Managan
The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association released the final classifications data today, after the WIAA executive board meet earlier this week to finalize the numbers.
The classifications will remain in place until the 2014 school year. Schools with 513 to 1085 students were in the 2A classifications, while schools with between 1086 and 1303 were grouped as 3A. All schools with more than 1304 students will compete in 4A.
Mercer Island easily remains in 3A with 1,114.75 students. The decimal points come from the FTE (full time equivalent) counting, so schools can accurately reflect running start and part time students.
Juanita High School was the second to smallest 3A school with 1096.27 students. Only Shorecrest was smaller with 1096.16 students.
Lake Washington will compete for the next two school years as 2A with 1064.91 students. The school dropped from 4A to 3A in the previously reclassification.
Interlake, which previously had competed in the 2A classification moved up to 3A, while Sammamish moved down to 2A with 902.95 students.
Skykomish High School is listed as the smallest high school in the state with 10 students, competing in the 1B classification. South Kitsap was the largest with 2,447.63 students.
