District Athletic Boards
The OHSAA member schools are divided geographically into six
districts and are represented by District Athletic Boards. The District Athletic
Boards conduct sectional and district tournament contests. Member school
administrators are elected to six year terms as District Board members by a vote of the
high school principals of the member schools in that district. Each class (A, AA, AAA) has
two members on the six member board, in addition to one ethnic
minority representative, one female representative and one
junior high representative. Two members are elected to the State Board of Directors
and serve two year terms. The District Board contracts with a Treasurer and
Secretary to conduct the financial and administrative responsibilities of the Board.
