WIAA members need more info on multiplier proposal

Posted:
STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WXOW)  There will be no multiplier for Wisconsin's private high school for the next school year.
But the issue is far from dead.
WIAA Membership voted Wednesday to form a committee instead, with the idea of gathering more information and presenting a final recommendation by December 1st.
WIAA officials and it's member schools present heard opinions from both sides on the controversial multiplier proposal at it's annual meeting in Stevens Point Wednesday.
The proposal adds a 1.65 multiplier to private school enrollments for tournament placements.
Under the proposal many of the private schools would have to play up a division in most or all of their sports.
Advocates of the multiplier idea say it would prevent private schools from dominating over their competition, especially in rural areas.
The final recommendation is expected to be voted on at the annual meeting this time next year.
