LHSAA Releases Proposed District Changes — Here’s How the Acadiana Districts May Look
The Louisiana High School Athletic Association has released its initial proposal for redistricting schools throughout the state for the 2022-24 seasons.
Every two years, the LHSAA reclassifies member schools according to enrollment and that affects what "Class" schools participate in for athletics.
A few Acadiana area schools will be moving classifications, including the following:
- Carencro - moving from 4A to 5A
- Port Barre - moving from 2A to 3A
- Lafayette Christian - playing up to 4A (though enrollment numbers puts them in 2A)
- Jeanerette - moving from 2A to 1A
Below are the proposed districts that affect the Acadiana area. Keep in mind that this is just the first draft of the proposed plan.
Also, schools have until November 12 to appeal the plan. The second classification meeting is scheduled for November 15.
(Teams italicized would be new to that particular district.)
