Here’s how some of the Texas media are breaking it down:
Highland Park is staying in Class 5A for the next two years. By 11 students.
Tuesday morning, the UIL released the classification cutoff numbers and school enrollment numbers for its upcoming biennial realignment. Class 6A will be the 249 schools with an enrollment of 2,220 and above, and Highland Park’s enrollment is 2,209 — up from 2,180 two years ago.
The UIL will announce the district alignments for the next two school years on Feb. 3.
Highland Park has been in 5A for the last two realignments and is currently the state’s fourth-largest school in the UIL’s second-largest classification. Highland Park’s football team was 56-5 in that span — including 20-1 in the playoffs — but its bid for a fourth straight Class 5A Division I state championship fell short this year with a 33-27 overtime loss to undefeated Frisco Lone Star in the third round of the playoffs Friday.
It was thought that Highland Park might have to move up to 6A, because in the last realignment, 6A consisted of schools with enrollments of 2,190 and above. When Highland Park was placed in 6A for two years starting in 2014, it went 10-2 and lost in the second round both years in football.The Dallas Morning News
