This is the image for the news article titled UIL Modifies Fall Calendar & COVID-19 GuidelinesThe University Interscholastic League (UIL) released modifications to the 2020-2021 UIL calendar and updated its COVID-19 risk mitigation guidelines . NISD officials are reviewing this information and will communicate additional details for each of our campuses as soon as possible.

According to the UIL, the modifications to the 2020-2021 calendar differ by activity and conference and can be found on the UIL website. These adjustments reflect the public health situation at this time and the varying numbers of COVID-19 cases across different geographic areas of the state. This plan provides a delay for schools in highly-populated metro areas, primarily conferences 5A-6A, given the challenges with COVID-19 those communities are facing, while providing schools in other areas, primarily 1A-4A, an opportunity to start seasons on schedule. Acknowledging the situation is not always clear-cut and that COVID-19 affects every community differently, the plan also allows for local flexibility.

The UIL advises schools to be prepared for the possibility of interruptions in contest schedules.
