OSSAA says fall activities to continue as scheduled
As school districts across Oklahoma prepare for the start of the upcoming school year, the decision of distance learning versus in-school learning was the big debate.
There has been another debate relative to schools in the state and that is whether or not the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association will allow fall activities to take place.
That question was answered Wednesday, as the OSSAA Board of Directors took no action during a meeting regarding a possible change to the fall schedule.
OSSAA Executive Director David Jackson said he wants the board to continue to analyze the data as the fall sports season begins, but at this time, didn’t see anything, which made the OSSAA want to halt fall activities.
“We do not feel the need to change the path we’re on and continue with our fall activities,” Jackson told reporters Wednesday.
If the OSSAA does decide to change the fall schedule, the option of moving to the spring remains but is unlikely.
During the regular seasons for fall sports, the individual schools make their decisions on whether or not to allow fans attend games. However, once the fall sports postseasons begin, that will fall on the OSSAA.
Football practice across the state began Monday, while cross country, softball and volleyball could all start their regular seasons this week.
