The districts are numbered from 1 in far west Texas to 32 in south Texas. There are always 32 districts in Conference 6A and Conference 5A, but the smaller conferences may have numbers skipped based on the number of schools in the conference. No more than 10 schools are permitted in a single district unless all schools and the UIL consent otherwise; the preference is for an even number of schools in each district 6, 8, 10 though in some cases travel issues may prevent such.
Previously, schools were permitted to request to be placed in a higher conference than their enrollment would otherwise dictate, usually to play at a higher level of competition.

The "play up" rule was later eliminated for competition reasons, but has been retained for geographic reasons where playing at the current level would create a travel hardship for the schooland where school districts with eight or more high schools could keep all or most of them in the same conference.
However, the school must then participate at the higher conference in all UIL events in which it does participate.
Each type of contest has different regions and competitors, as there is no requirement that a school participate in all UIL events — some small rural schools do not participate in football or choose six-man over man, while some magnet schools do not field athletic teams but participate in academic events only. Unlike the college ranks or other states, the regions and districts are not permanently set, but are redrawn biennially by the UIL behind closed doors in an attempt to keep schools of similar sizes within a certain distance of their geographic area when attending competitions, and to adjust for the changing enrollments of schools moving schools with increased attendance up in conference and those with decreased attendance down and new schools opening.
The main redrawing of regions and districts takes place on February 1 of even-numbered years and the final allocation, especially relating to high school footballis the subject of much pre-announcement anticipation and speculation as to which schools move up or down and the final composition of the districtsbut as new schools open or smaller schools close or disband programs, interim adjustments can be made.
The changing districts and regions have produced unusual results — for example, the Conference 5A boys' basketball championship featured champion DeSoto from Region II defeating Cedar Hill from Region I, notwithstanding that the schools are in neighboring districts. Football[ edit ] In Conference 6A, the top four teams from each district are eligible for the playoffs.
The two eligible teams with the highest student enrollment for its district are seeded in the Division I playoff bracket, and the remaining two teams with the lower enrollment are seeded in the Division II playoff bracket.
This method is supposed to prevent matchups between large and small schools within a classification, although in practice this is not always the case — for example, in the playoffs, Southlake Carroll the Conference 5A Division I champion had a lower student enrollment than Cedar Hill the Conference 5A Division II champion.
For all other man conferences and for six-man football, the UIL divides schools into separate Division I large and Division II small districts at its bi-annual redistricting session in these cases, there are a maximum of 16 districts statewide, as opposed to the 32 in the larger conferences ; separate playoffs are held for each division with the top four teams top two in six-man from each district eligible. Other major team sports[ edit ] In Conferences 6A and 5A, the top four teams from each district are eligible.
A similar arrangement exists in Conferences 2A-4A, and for Conference 1A in all other team sports except basketball, only the top three teams are eligible. For Conference 1A basketball, similar to the six-man football setup the UIL divides schools into separate Division I large and Division II small districts prior to the beginning of the season, and separate playoffs are held for each division with the top two teams from each district eligible.
This arrangement exists because, in some small schools, basketball is the only team sport in which the school participates. For baseball and softball, at all levels except the state tournament, playoff rounds are best 2-of-3 only if both coaches agree; if they do not then the coaches flip a coin to decide the format of the playoff single game or two out of three series. At the state tournament both the semifinals and finals are single-game format.
Academics and other sports[ edit ] Advancement in these activities is dependent on the individual event involved. Musical competition[ edit ] In musical competitions, schools are aligned into 33 regions the regions themselves are set not by the UIL, but by the Texas Music Educators Association.

Advancement within musical competition is not based on direct competition against other schools. Instead, musicians are compared against an established rubric this is comparable to conformation dog shows where dogs compete against the written standard for their breed, not against other dogs of differing breedsand all schools or individuals who are judged "Division 1" the highest level advance to the next level, except for state competition.
For marching band, schools compete against other schools in the same UIL conference. All schools of all conferences compete in region competition annually, as a fall semester activity. However, in even-numbered years schools in Conferences 2A, 4A, and 6A can advance from region to area and state, and in odd-numbered years schools from Conferences 3A and 5A can advance from region to area and state, in addition to schools in Conference 1A may advance from region to state There are no Area contests for Conference 1A, only for 2A and up.
In order for bands to advance from Region to Area, they need to get an overall Division 1 from at least two Region judges, whether it be a,etc The Area and State winner is the school with the lowest ordinal score when the rankings from each judge are tabulated. For example, School 1 receives a first place score from three judges, a second place score from the fourth judge, and a fourth place score from the fifth judge.

Out of necessity, the member schools adopted eligibility and participation rules and established authority for a Board of Control to assess penalties against schools for violations. In the Board of Control employed the first full-time Executive Secretary.1600m Run - 2017 UIL Texas State Meet 3A Boys
To date, six individuals have served as Executive Director. The largest 32 schools in the state are class 6A, the next largest 32 become 5A, the next 64 become 4A, 3A, and 2A respectively and the remaining schools become class 1A. These classes are re-evaluated every year for all activities except football, with new classifications announced in September after the start of the school year.
Ninth grade students were not counted toward the annual classification totals from through Classes 3A and 2A will continue to have 64 schools each, while the remaining schools will be in 1A. The two-division format which currently exists in 1A for basketball, scholars bowl and volleyball, and in 4A for baseball, basketball, softball and volleyball, will be eliminated. Football is evaluated biannually based only upon enrollment for grades 9, 10, and 11, with classifications for the next two seasons announced in October of an odd-numbered year.
Schools with or fewer students in grades have the option to play Eight-man football instead of the traditional man game. In man football, there are five classes 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, Awith 32 schools in 6A and 5A, 64 schools in 4A and 3A, and the remaining schools 43 for and ; 41 for and in A.
In eight-man football, there are two divisions of roughly equal size, with schools scheduled to compete in 8-man for the and seasons, decreasing to for and due to consolidation in many rural towns.
Classes 3A and 2A will have 48 schools each, and Class 1A will have the remaining man football playing schools 31 in and District play was introduced to determine playoff participants in From throughonly district champions advanced to the playoffs.
Inthe top two teams in each man district began to qualify for the playoffs; district runners-up were added to the playoff brackets for 8-man in In those classifications, teams now schedule the first eight games on their own, with the ninth week acting as the first week of the playoffs.
