The IHSA Board of Directors announced changes to its sports classification policy on Thursday.

The standard 1-4 class system remains in place, but due to imbalances in the number of schools in each class in several sports, beginning in 2011-2012 each sport will have its own set of enrollment cutoffs.

OPRF High School, with an enrollment of 3,256 students during the 2010-2011 school year, will not be affected by the change. The school’s enrollment is well over the highest class allotment in every sport.

“This won’t change our status, but it will make the early rounds of the state playoffs, say, in girls soccer, much more competitive,” said OPRF Athletics Director John Stelzer.

Fenwick High School’s enrollment for the 2010-11 school year was 1,197, but the school is subject to the 1.65 multiplier that takes the enrollment up to 1,975. It is also not expected to not be affected by the change.
