After comments from KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett, Kentucky Commissioner of Public Health, Dr. Steven Stack and several superintendents, the Kentucky Board of Education voted unanimously to send a letter to the KHSAA urging them to consider “additional consideration of alternative options for high-contact sports.”
The board voted 10-0 on the issue. However, practices or play has not been stopped by the board, meaning fall sports are still on as scheduled. Teams can start competition the week of September 7 with football kicking off on September 11.
