OHSAA Member School Enrollment Process Explanation
The male and female enrollments of member schools are used to determine OHSAA governance classifications (AAA, AA, A) and the OHSAA tournament divisions for each sport. The enrollment figures are based on the number of students in grades 9, 10 and 11 with athletic participation opportunities as of October 31, 2016. These numbers were provided by the Ohio Department of Education through their Education Management Information System (EMIS). After the enrollment numbers become final , the enrollment figures will be used to determine OHSAA tournament divisions for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years.
