The state shall be initially divided into three classes based on a four-year average enrollment, with each class containing seven (7) regions. The Commissioner shall divide the state into geographic sections within three (3) enrollment based classes with the approval of the Board of Control.
The alignment shall be reviewed for changes to be effective with the 2017-2018 school year and every four years thereafter. For the current alignment period, Class 3A shall contain schools with an average enrollment of 1065 students or higher (with single gender schools doubled for classification purposes), Class 2A shall consist of those schools with an average enrollment of 595 students to 1064 students (with single gender schools doubled for classification purposes) and Class 1A schools shall have an average enrollment of 594 students or less (with single gender schools doubled for classification purposes)
