FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, TX- The basketball district certification and playoff dates for the 2006-07 season were revised by the UIL today based on the recently revised TAKS testing schedule.
On April 14, 2006, the Texas Education Agency released a revised TAKS Testing schedule for the 2006-2007 school year, moving the February dates for the primary administration of the TAKS examination from February 13 to February 20.
Previously, based on the Assessment Calendar originally released by TEA, UIL had altered the district certification date and certain playoff dates for girls basketball to be in compliance with SB 658, passed during the 79th Legislative session. SB 658 prohibits UIL post district contests during the primary administration of the TAKS examination.
Based on the change in testing dates, the UIL is releasing the following revision to the 2006-2007 Official Calendar for both girls and boys basketball.
For Girls Basketball in the 2006-2007 school year, the following dates will be in effect for district certification and playoffs:
District Certification February 10
