WAHS RECLASSIFIED AS A 5A SCHOOL, TO REJOIN MID-VALLEY CONFERENCE

Superintendent Jim Golden announced that the Oregon School Activities Association has recommended that West Albany High School be reclassified as a 5A campus, down from the 6A level it has competed at for the last several years. The reclassification cleared the way for the school to rejoin the Mid-Valley Conference which already includes nearby schools such as South Albany, Corvallis, Crescent Valley and Lebanon High Schools. District officials lobbied hard for the moves as they were concerned that the increased travel distances to 6A schools such as Bend High School were a safety concern and would cause students to miss an increased amount of class time in travelling to those distant cities.
