South Garland will not opt up, will be reclassified in 5A at next UIL alignment
Over the past few seasons, Garland ISD has opted up high schools in order to stay as an ISD-only district. That will change next season, though.
Garland ISD athletic director Homer Johnson confirmed on Monday that South Garland, which submitted a snapshot number of 1,994 (according to Matt Stepp of TheOldCoach.com), will be playing in Class 5A - apart from the other schools in the Garland district.
South Garland had been below the enrollment cutoff for the 2012-14 alignment with 2,028 students, but opted up to Class 5A.
