N.C. High School Athletic Association Commissioner Que Tucker announced at the association’s annual meeting on Thursday that the association is delaying the realignment process by one year in order to pursue a fifth class.

During an address to the membership, Tucker said the board of directors will work on plans that includes 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 4AA classes. Right now, the board cannot work on a 5A class because the bylaws require the association operate with four classes. The 4AA class would be a subdivision of the 4A class.

This fall, the NCHSAA board of directors plans to receive an amendment proposal that would allow the NCHSAA to add a 5A class. That proposal would be voted on next spring by the entire membership and results announced at the annual meeting in May. In order to pass, three-fourths of the membership must support it — which is approximately 313 schools.

The start of the NCHSAA’s next realignment process will be delayed a year so the association can pursue a proposal to add a fifth classification.

Here’s what we know about that proposal:

• The high school athletics association would have to amend its bylaws to add a 5-A classification, but Commissioner Que Tucker said the board of directors will begin work immediately on a plan that would subdivide the current 4-A class into 4-A and 4-AA.

• The NCHSAA’s board of directors plans to hear an amendment proposal at its December meeting to add a 5-A class, and if the proposal is approved by the board the full membership would vote on it in the spring of 2020 and the results would be announced at the spring board meeting. A three-quarters majority of the 417 member schools is needed to amend the association’s bylaws.
