When you look at your favorite team’s district this year, you might wonder when they “moved up” a class. In reality, though, the changes are little more than a name change.

Every two years, the University Interscholastic League (UIL) looks at high school demographics and determines the district alignments. The changes from the 2012-14 period to the 2014-16 period are minor, and essentially bump up everyone in the state.

For Class 1A, the old cutoff was 199 students. Under the new alignment, it changes to 104.9 and less. With an enrollment of 121 students, Falls City bumps up to Class 2A. The new parameters for 2A are 105-219 students.

Poth, Stockdale, and Nixon-Smiley have been 2A for years. With enrollments of 247, 225, and 268, respectively, all three now fall into Class 3A -- defined by enrollment numbers of 220-464. Stockdale just made the cut.

The old Class 3A covered schools from 450-1004. Most, as is the case for La Vernia, become Class 4A. The new parameters are 465-1059. La Vernia has an enrollment of 975.

The Floresville teams move up to 5A with an enrollment of 1139. This new classification is for schools with enrollments of 1060-2099.

Finally, East Central’s enrollment of 2800 puts them in Class 6A, meant for schools with an enrollment of 2100 or more.

So while on the surface it seems as though the area’s schools all took a leap forward in their size, the reality is much different.
