regions and districts determined?<br /> A: Classifications were based solely on student enrollment, then geography. Please refer to <a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 12</a>.</p> <p>Q: What did the FHSAA use to determine a school&rsquo;s enrollment?<br /> A: As required annually, each member school submitted their enrollment numbers to our office in October.<br /> <br /> Q:&nbsp;Can a school appeal its placement if they wish to move up or down?<br /> A: After traveling the state this past year, the consensus the FHSAA heard from its athletic directors and coaches was that they wanted an equal number of teams by classification, an even number of teams in each district and region and no three-team districts. Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (<a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 12</a>). To maintain the wishes of our constituents, <strong><u>the FHSAA&nbsp;will not be accepting appeals.</u></strong></p> <p>Q: If a school does not like where it is placed, what are the options?<br /> A: The member school can become independent for the two-year classification cycle. Please refer to <a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 10.1.3</a>.</p> <p>Q:&nbsp;When will the classifications be &ldquo;final&quot; for bowling, golf, cross country and swimming &amp; diving?<br /> A: By April 1</p> <p>Q: When can we expect the other sports to be released?<br /> A: March 2019 - Winter Sport Classifications and Districts Released (BK, CC, SC, GWT and WR)<br /> May/June 2019 - Spring Sport Classifications and Districts Released (BA, FF, LAX, SB, TN, TK, BVB, WP and BWT)<br /> <strong>Note:&nbsp; Releases for a given sport will occur after that sport season has fully concluded&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Q: When does this classification cycle end?<br /> A: The new classification cycle for golf, bowling, cross country and swimming &amp; diving ends following the conclusion of the 2020 FHSAA season. Following the conclusion of the two-year cycle, the FHSAA will review classifications again using our FHSAA Board of Directors and Athletic Directors Advisory Committee-approved policies and procedures.</p> <p><strong><u>ABOUT THE FHSAA</u></strong></p> <p>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.

Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (FHSAA Policy 12). To maintain the wishes of our constituents, <strong><u>the FHSAA&nbsp;will not be accepting appeals.</u></strong></p> <p>Q: If a school does not like where it is placed, what are the options?<br /> A: The member school can become independent for the two-year classification cycle.

In her efforts to relieve the St. Augustine community from the heartbreaking effects from Hurricane Irma, she drew a portrait watercolor drawing of the St. Augustine skyline with other memorable local landmarks added. She sold both the watercolor portraits as well as printed the same drawing on t-shirts, for relief efforts. Her charitable contribution raised over $3,000 for Hurricane Irma victims. This was not the first time Mrs. Waldrop has done such a selfless act towards her community. The year before, Hurricane Matthew hit the small seaside town and she contributed $12,000 in relief funds with her artistic skills. She is the definition of a servant leader with a compassionate heart.</p> <p><strong><u>Roger Dearing Spirit of Sport Award</u></strong></p> <p><strong>Payton Titus, Paxon School for Advanced Studies &ndash; </strong>Payton is a scholar inside and outside of the classroom. She was an avid swimmer year-round, until 2017. Following the Florida High School Swimming and Diving State Championships, she felt swelling and pain near her collarbone. After multiple visits to the doctors, they determined that she had Hodgkin&rsquo;s lymphoma. She went through four cycles of chemotherapy. Over a span of year, she was diagnosed with cancer, went through treatment, and is now in remission and back in the pool after having to step away for seven months. In her comeback, she has become the Paxon Eagles Team Captain and a great mentor for her peers. Titus is a great example of an athlete who shows citizenship in her sport, has exceeded normal expectations, and has overcome extreme adversity.</p> <p><strong><u>About the Roger Dearing Heart of the Arts Award</u></strong></p> <p>The FHSAA has developed the &ldquo;Roger Dearing Heart of the Art Awards,&rdquo; to honor individual(s) who embody &ldquo;Heart of the Arts.&rdquo; The award covers an excess of performing arts disciplines and seeks to recognize those individuals who illustrate a positive heart of the arts and represent the core mission of education-based activities.

Below you will find frequently asked questions explaining the new procedure.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>DOES THAT MAKE IT OFFICIAL?</h4> <div><span><strong>YES.</strong> This new formula will be used for 2019 FHSAA Football Playoff Qualification.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHO RECOMMENDED THIS CHANGE?</h4> <div><span>The FHSAA Football Advisory Committee. The FHSAA Athletic Directors Advisory Committee voted to endorse the recommendation Jan. 16.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT IS THE RPI FORMULA?</h4> <div><span>RPI stands for Ratings Percentage Index. In short, it is a way to measure a team&rsquo;s strength relative to other teams, based largely on the strength of their schedules.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHY REPLACE THE PLAYOFF POINT SYSTEM?</h4> <div><span>The FHSAA Football Advisory Committee, made up of eight football coaches from each section of our state, along with one rep from the Florida Athletic Coaches Association, felt a move to a RPI ranking system was needed to create more accurate rankings for football playoff qualification and seeding. Furthermore, they felt the previous ranking system, which consisted of your own winning percentage and your opponents&rsquo; winning percentage, was shallow. Lastly, the committee cited bonus points specifically as creating scheduling havoc.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHY USE RPI INSTEAD OF ANOTHER RATING SYSTEM?</h4> <div><span>A major advantage to the RPI is the transparency that comes along with its accuracy. The components of the formula are known, and its results can be easily replicated. The calculation of the ranking is three layers deep, leading to more accuracy.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT DATA IS USED IN THE RPI FORMULA?</h4> <div><span>Regardless of when scheduled, all games played in the regular season would be counted toward the RPI calculation, with the exception of games against non-varsity opponents and preseason games.&nbsp;</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>HOW DO I RECEIVE MY RANKING?</h4> <div><span>Your ranking would be derived from three areas:</span></div> <div>&bull;<span> </span>Your winning percentage (35%)&nbsp;</div> <div>&bull;<span> </span>Your opponents&rsquo; winning percentage (35%)&nbsp;</div> <div>&bull;<span> </span>Your opponents&rsquo; opponents&rsquo; winning percentage (30%)<br /> &nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT IS THE FORMULA?</h4> <div><strong>RPI = (0.35 &times; WP) + (0.35 &times; OWP) + (0.30 &times; OOWP)</strong></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT DATA IS USED IN THE RPI FORMULA?</h4> <div><span>All games played in the regular season would be counted toward the RPI calculation, with the exception of games against non-varsity opponents and preseason games.&nbsp;</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>HOW ARE THE COMPONENTS OF THE RPI CALCULATED?</h4> <div><strong>Winning Percentage (WP):</strong><span> Divide the number of wins by the number of total games played. A tie is worth half a win. If a win in an individual contest gives that contest a winning percentage of 1.00, a tie would give that individual contest a winning percentage of .500 for both teams.</span></div> <div><strong>Opponents&rsquo; Winning Percentage (OWP): </strong>Average the winning percentages of a team&rsquo;s opponents. (Note: This is not calculated via the combined record of the opponents, instead by averaging each winning percentage of the opponents.) All games involving the team whose RPI is being calculated are ignored in this process.</div> <div><strong>Opponents&rsquo; Opponents&rsquo; Winning Percentage (OOWP):</strong> The same process as described above, except calculated for the opponents of a team&rsquo;s opponents.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>HOW ARE OUT-OF-STATE OPPONENTS HANDLED?</h4> <div><span>Out-of-state opponents will be counted the same as in-state opponents:</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>CAN I EARN BONUS POINTS?</h4> <div><strong>NO.</strong><span> Your ranking and earned values would be based solely on the values in the formula.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT HAPPENS IF TWO TEAMS FINISH WITH THE SAME RPI?</h4> <div><span>The tiebreaker is as follows:</span></div> <ol> <li>Head-to-head result between the two teams</li> <li>Winning percentage</li> <li>Opponents&rsquo; winning percentage</li> <li>Opponents&rsquo; opponents&rsquo; winning percentage</li> <li>Highest-rated win (according to the final RPI standings)</li> <li>Next-highest rated win (exhaust all possibilities)</li> </ol> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE RPI STANDINGS BE RELEASED?</h4> <div><span>Like the previous two years, the official FHSAA Rankings would be published on FHSAA.org every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., beginning Week 6 of the regular season. Any ranking data published elsewhere is unofficial.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>HOW SHOULD TEAMS BE SCHEDULING?</h4> <div><span>The main thing to remember with the RPI is it takes an entire body of work into account. Coaches should have a big picture attitude when scheduling - do not focus on one game.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>DOES MARGIN OF VICTORY MATTER?</h4> <div><strong>NO.</strong><span> There is zero factor for margin of victory in the RPI formula. A 3-2 win counts the same as a 77-0 victory.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHAT HAPPENS IF A GAME IS CANCELLED AND CANNOT BE RESCHEDULED?</h4> <div><span>Because the RPI system works off of averages, it would not make a difference in the final formula if a game cannot be rescheduled. It would not penalize, nor benefit, any team involved in that scenario.</span></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <h4>WHERE WILL I REPORT SCORES?</h4> <div><span>Continue reporting scores to MaxPreps. The official RPI feed will be calculated off of results entered into that platform ONLY.</span></div> Football Media, Communications, & Marketing Mon, 28 Jan 2019 15:03:33 +0000 kyleniblett 41014 at https://www.fhsaa.org Board of Directors agenda available for January 27-28 Meeting https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2019/0118-1 <p>The FHSAA Board of Directors Meeting for January 27-28, 2019, will take place at the Robert W.

Davis Passes Away https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2019/0118-0 <p><strong>GAINESVILLE, FLA. (1/18/19)</strong> &ndash; Ronald N. Davis, who served as the Florida High School Athletic Association Commissioner from July 1, 1991-Jan. 15, 1999, died Thursday after a long battle with Dementia with Lewy Body. He was 82.</p> <p>Born Dec. 19, 1936, Davis was best remembered for holding the Association together during a tumultuous period where the organization almost split between public member schools and private member schools. Using his leadership skills to unite both parties after an internal struggle, the Laurel Hill School graduate fought off the very right to exist by the Florida Legislature. As a result of his tenacity and persistence, the Florida Legislature gave the FHSAA statutory recognition in 1997 as the official governing body for interscholastic athletics in Florida.</p> <p>Credited with paving the Association&rsquo;s way into the next century, Davis was also responsible for making the FHSAA a nationwide technology leader among high school athletic associations. Under his leadership, the FHSAA was one of the first associations nationally to report and track student eligibility electronically. Davis also oversaw the development and creation of the FHSAA&rsquo;s first website, which became a vital tool for communication with member schools, officials, the news media and the general public. FHSAA Online was one of the first high school athletic association websites in America, featuring updated brackets for each state championship tournament, news releases, agendas for and minutes of official meetings and the complete member school directory.</p> <p>Much of the FHSAA infrastructure in place currently was a direct result of Davis, who gave his constituents direct access in the decision-making process by instituting advisory committees for athletic directors, officials and coaches in every sport in which the FHSAA conducted a championship. During his tenure, the Public Liaison Advisory Committee and Sports Medicine Advisory Committee were also created. Furthermore, Davis nearly doubled the Association&rsquo;s staff from 10 full-time members and one part-timer to 19 full-time members and two part-timers, while also buying a new office building.<br /> <br /> Under Davis&rsquo; leadership, the FHSAA negotiated agreements with corporate partners and instituted an officially licensed souvenir merchandise program that helped the Association grow financially without negatively impacting its member schools. Championship series&rsquo; revenues increased in some cases fourfold.<br /> <br /> The former Crestview High School principal emphasized the importance of recognizing schools and individuals who achieved success in areas other than those in which the Association awards championships. During his time at the FHSAA, he established four special recognition programs &ndash; the FHSAA Hall of Fame, the Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Awards, the Floyd E. Lay All Sports Awards and the FHSAA Academic All-State Team. Upon his retirement, the academic award was named in his honor.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Funeral services will be held at the Forest Grove Baptist Church in Alachua on Jan. 20 at 2 p.m., with burial to follow at the Forest Grove Cemetery. Visitation will take place one hour prior to the service at the church.</p> <p>In lieu of flowers, the family would request donations to the Paso Fino Horse Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 1860, Alachua, Florida, 32616 to fund youth scholarships. In the past 15 years, the foundation, which is chaired by his daughter Marcia and long supported by the Davis family, has assisted children involved in the Paso Fino breed attend college or vocational school. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $180,000 in college tuition and assisted more than 55 young riders to purse their academic dreams.</p> <p><strong><u>ABOUT THE FHSAA</u></strong></p> <p>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.

But when it comes to verbally criticizing game officials or coaches, cool it.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Make no mistake about it. Your passion is admired, and your support of the hometown team is needed. But so is your self-control. Yelling, screaming and berating the officials humiliates your child, annoys those sitting around you, embarrasses your child&rsquo;s school and is the primary reason Florida has an alarming shortage of high school officials.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>It&rsquo;s true. According to a recent survey by the National Association of Sports Officials, more than 75 percent of all high school officials say &ldquo;adult behavior&rdquo; is the primary reason they quit. And 80 percent of all young officials hang up their stripes after just two years of whistle blowing. Why? They don&rsquo;t need your abuse.</p> <p>Plus, there&rsquo;s a ripple effect. There are more officials over 60 than under 30 in many areas. And as older, experienced officials retire, there aren&rsquo;t enough younger ones to replace them. If there are no officials, there are no games. The shortage of licensed high school officials is severe enough in some areas that athletic events are being postponed or cancelled&mdash;especially at the freshman and junior varsity levels.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Research confirms that participation in high school sports and activities instills a sense of pride in school and community, teaches lifelong lessons like the value of teamwork and self-discipline and facilitates the physical and emotional development of those who participate. So, if the games go away because there aren&rsquo;t enough men and women to officiate them, the loss will be infinitely greater than just an &ldquo;L&rdquo; on the scoreboard. It will be putting a dent in your community&rsquo;s future.</p> <p>If you would like to be a part of the solution to the shortage of high school officials, you can sign up to become a licensed official at HighSchoolOfficials.com. Otherwise, adult role models at high school athletic events here in Florida are always welcome.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 07 Jan 2019 18:26:30 +0000 kyleniblett 40698 at https://www.fhsaa.org FHSAA Announces Football Classifications For 2019 and 2020 Seasons https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2018/1214 <p><strong>GAINESVILLE, FLA.

Please refer to FHSAA Policy 12.</p> <p><strong>Q: What did the FHSAA use to determine a school&rsquo;s enrollment?</strong><br /> A: As required annually, each member school submitted their enrollment numbers to our office in October.<br /> <br /> <strong>Q:</strong><strong> Can a school appeal its placement if they wish to move up or down?&nbsp; </strong></p> <p>A: After traveling the state this past year, the consensus the FHSAA heard from its athletic directors and coaches was that they wanted an equal number of teams by classification, an even number of teams in each district and region and no three-team districts. Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (FHSAA Policy 12).

The Board also reduced the classifications in the following sports to six classes plus rural (rural is not affected): baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, softball and girls volleyball.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">District tournaments will remain and be seeded by MaxPreps rankings released at the end of the regular season. However, schools are no longer required to play regular-season district contests.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">Following district tournaments, the regional playoff brackets for Class 2A-7A (1A rural playoff structure remains the same) will consist of four regions per class and four districts per region. District champions now automatically qualify for the playoffs, with the top four seeds in each region being seeded by MaxPreps. Following the top four automatic qualifiers being seeded, teams 5-8 will receive at-large bids via their MaxPreps rankings. Higher seeds would host.

Fall sports will be released after the completion of the fall sports season.</p> <p><strong>Does this new system encourage member schools to run up the score?</strong><br /> According to the MaxPreps representative who spoke at the FHSAA Board of Directors meeting Monday, there is no incentive to run up the score when it comes to MaxPreps rankings.</p> <p><strong>Could a district champion have to travel to a higher-seeded district runner-up?</strong><br /> No. The district champions automatically qualify for playoff seeds 1-4. After the district champions are seeded 1-4 via MaxPreps rankings, four at-large teams then qualify for seeds 5-8 via their MaxPreps rankings. The higher seed always hosts.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Is it true teams do not have to play regular-season district games to qualify for their district tournament?</strong><br /> Regular season district games are not required in order to participate in the district tournament.</p> <p><strong>Can I petition to move up or down a class?</strong><br /> Schools can petition for geographic isolation reasons per Policy 12.</p> <p><strong>Will all teams be required to report their scores on MaxPreps?</strong><br /> Yes. Scores are required to be inputted in MaxPreps. For football this fall, 99 percent of games have been inputted. For volleyball this fall, 97 percent of games have been inputted. Member schools who do not input their scores will be subject to sanctions.</p> <p><strong>Will schools be required to enter stats into MaxPreps with this new system?</strong><br /> No. Only schools advancing to the Florida High School State Championships will be required to have updated stats on MaxPreps.</p> <h5><strong><em>About the FHSAA</em></strong></h5> <p style="margin:0px 0px 7.5pt; padding:0px"><em>The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.
