Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill prohibits a school district from being a member of an interscholastic
athletic association unless the association elects to be governed by the state's public
records and open meetings laws. An interscholastic athletic association that elects
to be governed by the public records and open meetings laws is subject to those laws.
Under the bill, an interscholastic athletic association can be either a nonprofit,
unincorporated association or a nonstock, nonprofit corporation, if the
unincorporated association or corporation coordinates athletic events or contests for
students enrolled in grades 9 to 12 in the public schools.
