Appeals Panel Process

On occasion, school administrators, parents and/or students form the opinion that the decision of the Executive Director's Office was in error and as a result a desire to appeal that decision arises. The Constitution of the member schools of the OHSAA anticipates this and Constitution Article 5-6-1, Powers and Duties of the Board of Directors, authorizes the Board of Directors to establish an appeals process for such occasions. The Appeals Panel is not completely independent of the Board of Directors and/or the Executive Director’s Office, and all members of the Appeals Panel either are or were professional educators from OHSAA member schools. Please note that the Appeals Panel has no authority to waive or modify the requirements of the Bylaws; the Panel can only try to determine if the Executive Director’s Office has made an error in its interpretation.
