The Board of Control conducted its first meeting of the 2020-21 academic year on July 10, examining various issues concerning the restart of school-based athletics in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic. During the course of its meeting, the Board approved a recommendation to extend the guidance and allowances for Segment 3 of the document issued for summer play in KHSAA sports and sport-activities through Sunday, August 2, except for the sport of golf.

In other action, the Board approved revisions to the Dance competition rules and designated the competition dances as Jazz, Hip Hop, Pom, and Game Day with no squad size subdivisions.

Additional information will be released to coaches in the annual Dance rules clinic and the event declaration form will be updated in early August.
