2018-19 Divisions and Sections Updated – FAQ

You can now see the 2018-19 division, class and section assignments under “2018-2019 Divisions & Sections”.

New Class/Section FAQ

1. Will we still have Division plaques for the top 2 (or 3) teams?

Yes, but there will be no plaques for section winners.

2. How will we rank teams in the section?
By total points. This illustrates the need for uniformity in grading. PLEASE mark student questions as WRONG if their answer does not match the provided answer (with discretion of graders to apply associative, commutative, and distributive properties). If students are convinced that the answer key is incorrect, please follow the challenge procedures.

3. Does the new tournament qualification process (i.e. Sections) change the way individuals qualify for the state tournament?

No. The top individual from each Division plus the top 50 (and ties) across the state will be invited to the Individual Tournament

4. How often are Class and Section assignments reviewed?

Every two years, starting in 2019 – 2020. This year’s assignment is only for one year.

5. What happens if a school joins the League late?

Schools that join late will be placed in an appropriate Class and Section. Teams in that Section will be notified of the addition.

6. How do teams see their section standing?
