Policy and Administration

The League's policy governance consists of district-wide committees, as well as the State Executive Committee that interprets the rules, settles disputes between different UIL districts and disputes which arise past the district level. The SEC also conducts investigations and hearings of alleged violations, and hears appeals. The Legislative Council retains oversight on all rules and and has delegated authority from the Commissioner of Education to approve rule changes.

The UIL Constitution and Contest Rules are the official rules that govern all UIL-sponsored activities and also define the direction, function and purpose of the League.

The UIL is governed by the Legislative Council, State Executive Committee, Waiver Review Board, and District Executive Committees.

The sole purpose of eligibility rules and contest regulations is to keep competition equitable and to maintain activities in proper perspective.

Amendments to the UIL Constitution passed at the 2013 October Legislative Council meeting have been approved by the Commissioner of Education.
