The enrollments numbers, which decide classifications for the
next two years, have been released.
A word of warning on these numbers. They are raw and not final. Schools have until Jan. 7 to decide if they will opt-up to a higher classification. Every team that opts up to a higher classification pushes a team down to a lower classification.
The early numbers are showing Central Kitsap coming in as a 3A school (down from 4A). Bainbridge is coming in as a 2A school (down from 3A).
Bremerton’s numbers put them as a 3A, but expect that to change. AD Jeff Barton confirmed those numbers are likely counting students at the West Sound Technical Skills Center, which has students from all over the county. Last two-year cycle, Bremerton successfully lobbied to get those kids off their enrollment number and dropped down to 2A.
Here are the numbers: WIAA 2014-16 Final Classification Numbers 11-22-13
