High Schools switching boards

We have a local situation where a High School, who has been supported by one Board for many years, now wants to switch to another Board. They give no particular reason but we suspect it's because the new varsity coach is friends with the assigner from the other Board.
I'd like to know how have others dealt with this situation? Do you have something in writing that would prevent this from happening or procedures to follow in order for a school to switch Boards?

Ahh, the joys of having one state association making the assignments...... Less drama....less politics....

In Florida, each school is free to contract with any state-registered association. Every year we gain and lose a school or two. We try to avoid the politics and personality conflicts by providing reliable, professional umpires to every school. Well, we do the best we can with the officials we have .

Pretty much the way it is in Texas, too.

In Georgia the GHSA took over assigning associations to schools. There is some politics involved but I like it better than bidding for contracts because now Coaches have a very hard time blackballing associations and individual officials as they have no choice but to use us. I will say that the blackballing still goes on on the individual level but even that is not as bad.

Here in New York it is a mixed bag - some associations handle the assigning--I am assuming under some kind of contract system---but here in our section, the assigning and payments are handled by an organization called BOCES, which is a body created by the local school districts to centralize supply services, some of the v-tech training, etc...they created about 25 years ago an Athletic Coordinators Office initially for game scheduling purposes, but gradually officials scheduling was included, and even more eventually they took over the payouts of game fees. No more haggling with individual schools for late checks! At the end of the month, we print out a voucher, sign it, and email back- and get our checks in about 15 days! The only downer is that since those who work two or more sports make quite a bit of $$, we get 1099's now....oh well...between mileage, uniforms and other deductions, it all comes out as a wash anyways!

Forgot to explain that the NYSPHSAA divvies up the state into sections (Im in Section 9), and apparently allows each section leeway in deciding how to administer itself...NYC is an entity all to itself!

Here on long Island, I'm in Section XI. The Section office handles all assignments and payments to all officals in all school sports. Works well.
