2022-2024 Reclassification and Realignment Information

Reclassification and Realignment Packet

*2nd Realignment and Reclassification Notice

10/21/21

UIL is preparing to collect enrollment submissions for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 UIL Reclassification and Realignment. The enrollment snapshot date is October 29, 2021. You will not be able to submit enrollments until the enrollment window is opened on October 29th. The UIL Conference and District Alignment Policies and Procedures have been posted and can be found with the following link: http://www.uiltexas.org/alignments

To prepare for this, we are asking superintendents to login into the UIL Portal to review, verify, and submit certain information.

  1. First, we ask that you review the list of high schools in your school district that will be participating in the 2022-23 school year to ensure all your high schools are listed. Additionally, we need you to verify the type of school for each of your high schools: traditional, alternative or open enrollment charter. For UIL alignment purposes, the following information will help you make those determinations:
  • Traditional School
    • A traditional school is a comprehensive high school or open enrollment charter school with a defined attendance zone.
  • Alternative School
    • An alternative school is one without defined attendance zones. These may include, but are not limited to:
    • Discipline alternative education programs (DAEP) and juvenile justice alternative education programs (JJAEP),
    • Juvenile detention centers, county jails;
    • Drop-out prevention/drop-out recovery schools, credit recovery schools, high school equivalency (GED) programs;
    • Schools of Choice, such as:
      • ISD charters,
      • Career and technical education campuses,
      • Early college campuses, T-STEM campuses,
      • Men’s/women’s leadership academies,
      • Other ISD schools that do not have defined attendance zones from which they draw their students.
  • Open Enrollment Charter School

If there is a school that will be participating in UIL activities missing from your list of schools, please contact the UIL office immediately so we can address the issue. You can call Kevin Jones at (512) 471-5883 or email kjones@uiltexas.org.

2. Second, the Superintendent can digitally assign and transfer this responsibility in the portal to another registered district employee with an account.


The following instructions will guide you through verifying the high schools in your district and, if you choose, assigning the submission of enrollment figures to another district employee.

1. Verifying schools:

Superintendents can log into the UIL Portal and verify their participating member schools for the 2022-24 alignment period: https://uil.registermyathlete.com

Once you are logged in, click ‘Register as a Coach/Manage Coaches/Manage PAPFs’, then click ‘Navigation’ on the left hand side. Once in the navigation pane, click ‘Enrollment and Activity’ and then ‘Enrollment Home’. This will bring you to a list of all of your UIL member schools, along with a designation of ‘School Type’ for purposes of the alignment submission process. See information above for a description of each school type.

If the information for a school is correct, simply click ‘Information Correct’ and move to the next school, if applicable.

If the information is not correct, click the box listing the school type, make the correct designation, and click ‘Update Info’ (which will populate once you change the school type).

Once you have completed verifying the schools listed, click ‘Ok’ to complete the verification process.

2. Transferring Submission of Enrollment Figures to another School District or Campus Administrator:

The Superintendent can digitally assign and transfer this responsibility in the portal to another registered district employee with an account.

To assign all schools in the school district to the same employee, click ‘Assign All’ in the top left of the screen. Begin typing the name of the person to whom the duties will be assigned and click their name when it appears in the search box.

You can also assign schools individually to different employees. Click the appropriate row containing the name of the school you wish to assign. Then, click ‘Assign to School Admin’. Begin typing the name of the person to whom the duties will be assigned and click their name when it appears in the search box. The assigned user for each school, if applicable, will appear in the display box ‘Assigned to:’ at the end of each row.

Thank you for taking the time to ensure we have your information correct in the UIL Portal. Again, no enrollment figures may be submitted until the enrollment window opens on October 29th.

No enrollment information may be entered into the online enrollment system until October 29, 2021. The deadline for submission of Reclassification and Realignment data will be November 5, 2021.

Additionally, once logged in, the superintendent can digitally assign and transfer this responsibility in the portal to another registered district employee with an account.

Conference and District Assignment Policies and Procedures for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 Realignment are posted on the UIL website at: http://www.uiltexas.org/alignments

New Schools

If your school district is opening a new school for the 2022-23 or 2023-24 school year and you have not yet submitted a New School Form, please contact Kevin Jones in the Policy Department (kjones@uiltexas.org) as soon as possible.

Homeschool Participation

At this time, information regarding homeschool participation for the 2022-2024 enrollment period is still in the process of being finalized. More information regarding homeschool participation will be disseminated in future communication before the enrollment snapshot date on October 29th.

Information for Alternative Schools

Schools should pay particular attention to the R&R policies related to alternative schools, both disciplinary and non-disciplinary.

Alternative schools include (but may not be limited to):

  • ISD charters,
  • Career and technical education campuses,
  • Early college campuses, T-STEM campuses,
  • Men’s/women’s leadership academies,
  • Other ISD schools that do not have defined attendance zones from which they draw their students.

Single High School Districts

If a school district with only one high school opens a second high school with the same attendance boundaries as its primary high school, the enrollment of both schools will be combined to determine conference placement for the primary school.

Multiple High School Districts

Districts with multiple high schools and alternative schools should read the following information carefully. Where students attending alternative schools should count for UIL purposes is largely determined by whether or not the alternative schools is a participating member school of UIL. Generally, alternative schools, for the purposes of UIL Reclassification and Realignment, are schools in the list above that do not have defined attendance zones.

UIL Member Alternative Schools

Alternative schools that are participating member schools in UIL will have all of their students count toward the enrollment at the member alternative school.

In some cases, a member alternative school only offers UIL academic and/or music activities, and allows students attending that alternative school to participate in athletics at the student’s traditional home campus. All students like this must be reported to the District Executive Committee and UIL on the Alternative School Student Eligibility Form, and will count in the alternative school enrollment AND the traditional home campus enrollment. The submission process will include instructions for how to report these students electronically.

Non-Member Alternative Schools

Alternative schools that are not participating member schools in UIL are required to report students toward the enrollment figures of the traditional school each student would have attended based on the residence of the parents of said student or to the school the student would attend by ISD policy if they were not enrolled in the alternative school. The submission process will include instructions for how to report these students.

Graduated Students

Students who have graduated from high school, but continue to receive services from your district SHOULD NOT be included in your enrollment submission. The PEIMS coding for these student should confirm the student has been graduated after meeting all graduation requirements. Students enrolled in grades nine through twelve who have NOT graduated from high school SHOULD be included in your enrollment submission regardless of age.

No information may be entered into the online enrollment system until October 29, 2021. The deadline for submission of Reclassification and Realignment data will be November 5, 2021.

Specific instructions for reclassification and realignment online enrollment submission will be sent to superintendents as we approach the submission date.
