How would this impact open enrollment if at all?

Presumably the WIAA might have to develop additional policies about how to "count" HS enrollments at schools that adopt grade-sharing practices. My guess is that this might be mostly used to maintain elementary schools in local communities; a school that is grade-sharing at the HS level is probably co-oping with nearby districts for athletics. Or maybe a grade-sharing agreement is done in concert with creating an athletic co-op. But, in the instance where a school grade-shares with a nearby district at the HS, and still maintains its own athletic teams, you'd have to figure out a way to "count" those students for purposes of divisional placement. It may not make much a difference in the long run -- the school districts likely to do this are quite small.

My guess this would actually be more like a "Union" high school. So there would be just one high school between the two districts, and that high school's enrollment would form the number. Kind of like Arrowhead, Wilmot, and other schools that are "Union" high schools, where multiple elementary districts feed into one high school.

I am pretty sure this is already happening with shared or combined football programs.

Mount Horeb/Barneveld, New Glarus/Monticello, Kohler/Sheb. Luth./Christian, Tigerton/Marion, Spencer/Columbus Catholic

Add the enrollment from both schools and that is the division they play.

Although I can see an issue under this scenario: Neighboring (small enrollment) districts, and they decide to "share" 9th and 10th graders. So District A offers a full range of 9th grade classes, with students from District A and District B both attending District A for all of 9th grade. Then they switch, with all of those students attending District B for 10th grade.

You could maintain separate high schools (and presumably separate athletic teams), and then this proposal would allow such an arrangement. That would cause some issues with enrollment counts for those athletic programs.

Banks -- this is different than how the WIAA counts enrollment for athletic co-ops. This is grade-sharing, which is a different arrangement of kids in high schools for academic program reasons.

This could make any sort of plan that factors in designated feeder MS attendance a little tricky.

That type of plan has only been proposed on message boards...There is nothing before the WIAA regarding that. I am a proponent of that type of plan, and I agree it would definitely need to be accounted for.

Just think of schools of similar enrollments, lets say 500 students. How many middle schools will these schools typically have? I just don't see what the difference is if public school X has one middle school and private school Y has five? Both schools still have the same # of kids to draw from within their high school.

Public School X will probably keep the greater majority of their middle school students, while private school Y will most likely lose way more of their students to other public schools because those public schools are closer and there is no tuition to pay, compared to the private school they could attend.

It's all based on, to this point, a non existent feeder MS attendance multiplier and I am just saying if that type of multiplier did exist and if school A & B combine for whatever reason in 8th grade what school do those kids get counted toward?
