School Movement in Classifications for 2018-19 School year?  9/27/2017 9:07:32 AM score: 0    hide

Would like to hear the pros and cons of the recent classification changes for schools. Nampa, Kuna, Caldwell, Columbia, IF to 4A, Mountain Home to 3A? Mountain Home has about 950 kids playing schools with 320?

I haven't heard anything about Mountain Home petitioning down to 3A.

Mt Home is considering petitioning to join the Magic valley schools instead of the SRV. The 4A teams in the Magic Valley are looking at joining Preston, Pocatello and Century in District 5. It will be interesting to see what exactly the landscape looks like after all the dust settles. -DJ

From a travelling perspective, it makes a lot more sense to have Mountain Home in District 4 than 3 if they're in 3A. Being in the SRV would make them have to travel a minimum of 3 hours round trip vs 2 hours round trip in the SCIC.

Over all 4th district 3A is weaker than 3rd district. Mt Home seems to want it's cake and ice cream?

In the main, I think the reclasses are all good. Was surprised that KUNA made the list but have no qualms with their move (although I don't think it will last long) - and no heartburn in the least with the Canyon County crew settling in 4A. I find it ironic that SKYVIEW asked to opt out, guessing that everyone (but them) wanted to see the Hawks take their turn in barrel...personally I think they will be fairly competitive across the board, much like the Kavemen have been...need to figure out with the subtraction of two teams in the 5A SIC and the additional three in the 4A SIC ranks what that will mean for # of state berths???

term, as it stands right now there will be 18 5A teams in the state (10 in Treasure Valley, 4 in eastern Idaho, 4 in northern Idaho). If I had a bet, I would guess that the state playoffs would go back to an 8-team format, with 4 berths going to the SIC, 2 to eastern Idaho, and 2 to northern Idaho. If they were to keep a 12-team format, it might go 6 berths to the SIC, 3 to eastern Idaho, and 3 to northern Idaho, but to me that seems unlikely. That means only 6 teams miss the playoffs in 5A.

Cane - 8 team playoffs would be my guess too but it would be a shame to see the 12 team playoff go by the wayside for 5A...it's the reward for the SIC HAVE NOTs - otherwise one can just take out the sharpie and fill in ROCKY/MTN VIEW/CAPITAL/EAGLE from the SIC and call it a season.

Term: I think that you are right about the SIC - If it goes to 8 teams just pencil in Rocky, MV, Eagle and Capital every year- They seem to have the programs in place to compete every year. The other question that I am seeing in 4A does district 5/6 split or do they stay together? If they were to stay together they would form 9 teams , which is what the SIC already has in 4A, but I am getting the oppinon from just reading news that district 6 wants to split from district 5. Currently District 6 dominates in this area especially in football. This would force district 5 probably to go to district 4 - No offense, but I would like to see the competition improve. Right now it appears that at least in district 5/6 4A that Skyline is dominating in football and Berger has a great program going. I would also have to believe that IF with LOW 5A numbers would probably stay right around the same numbers would probably always be in the #2 spot or close to it and Molino appears to have righted the ship. To me way out from LEFT FIELD looks at it like why didn't Skyline petition up to 5A, Move IF to 5A like they are supposed to be and make the 5A conference as competitive as it could be. That would have also taken care of the issues on the 4A catagory. I know that there is many out there who disagree with me on this. That is OK. However, I would like to read other view points on this, so please reply back and grow this thread. I Really do like reading other view points - THANKS!
