FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN— The biennial University Interscholastic League reclassification and realignment for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years will be released Monday, Feb. 3 at 9:00 a.m. CST. The new alignments, established by enrollment figures submitted to the UIL by its member schools in October, will serve as the football and basketball districts for the next two school years.

The UIL has posted the 2014 reclassification and realignment procedure memo for schools and the 2014-16 selections for reclassification and realignment on the UIL website at http://www.uiltexas.org/alignments.

The League will host a question and answer session for interested media outlets regarding the release of the reclassification and realignment on Monday, Feb. 3 at 9:15 a.m. at the UIL building in Austin. All media present will be given complete reclassification and realignment packets. Media outlets interested in scheduling an interview with UIL Director of Athletics Dr. Mark Cousins or UIL Deputy Director Jamey Harrison for Monday should contact the UIL Media Office to schedule an interview.

Reclassification and realignment districts and information will be released through an electronic press release at 9 a.m. Monday to media on the UIL press release recipient list.  The information will also be available online via the UIL website at www.uiltexas.org, and at the 20 Regional Education Centers across the state. Additionally, complete reclassification and realignment packets will be available at the UIL office in Austin.
