The decision to give further study to the points rating system means that seeding and selecting playoff teams for the 2024-26 cycle remains uncertain for Class 3A and below.
Playoff selection and seeding became an issue when the GHSA moved to separate private schools in 3A to A for the state playoffs. Those private schools need a rating system to select and seed their teams since their teams compete in three classifications during the regular season.
The reclass committee originally planned to apply the same points rating system to the public school playoffs in 3A, 2A, A Division I and A Division II and still might, but many public schools want something more similar to the traditional playoff selection, where regions pick their champions and playoff qualifiers.
The reclass committee and the GHSA office hope to have a new proposal ready for the full executive committee, which meets Nov. 29.
