Policy and Administration
The rule change proposals listed below will be considered by the UIL Legislative Council Standing Committees in June 2013.
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 sole purpose of eligibility rules and contest regulations is to keep competition equitable and to maintain activities in proper perspective.
