    Proposed CIML Split

    East, Hoover, North, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Indianola, Marshalltown and Ottumwa might split from CIML and form a new conference. Remaining 11 teams would still be part of CIML.

    Not sure why Mason City and Fort Dodge wouldn't split too for competitive balance. however I don't really follow CIML sports so I'm talking out of my rear.

    They're ahead of their time. They're breaking apart a super conference. One complaint was being in a conference within the conference in that article. Wonder when we'll see the ACC, SEC, and Big 10 go down that path.

    Ottumwa should drop to 3A along with Fort Dodge and Mason City. Ames should join this new conference. Hasn't Ames'ss's's enrollment dropped considerably in the last 15 years?

    Just FYI, you can't move down classification (e..g, Ottumwa can't move to 3A). You can move up but you can't move down.

    The lost enough students to be classified as 3A rather than moving voluntarily. If they still had >700 students they would have to be in 4A for football. Ottumwa, Mason City and Fort Dodge cannot move to 3A.

    So you are telling people that schools cant just join 1A with 1500 enrollment? You are a God Damned Genius.

    Re: Proposed CIML Split

    Where a school falls classification wise is sort of by school enrollment. The top 48 schools get classified as 4A, the next 64 get classified as 3A, the next 72 get classified at 2A, ... (I don't remember the number for 1A...class A gets who ever is left)

    You can't just independently choose to move down, though. It's a function of enrollment. My high school jumped back and forth between 2A and 3A a few times, based mostly on the enrollment changes of other schools.

    Ames'ss's's enrollment is around 1500, so no.

    Good ol' angry Ribs.

    According to

    https://www.educateiowa.gov/data-reporting/data-reporting/certified-enrollment/school-district-certified-enrollment#Public_School_Districts


    Unless I'm reading the spreadsheets incorrectly district enrollment is down. Quite a bit actually.

    Angry? I answered your question. And that is data for the entire district, which is down.

    When I went to Ames High in the early 90s, there were about 1200-1300 students. Now there are 1500. Math.
