Is this why Gamble left?  

Twitter showing they made an error of 3 students when reporting number. Apparently after this season, they can leave current district with unanimous vote, and enter a 2ad1 district with a unanimous vote and be eligible for playoffs. 
 

At least that is what Stepp is retweeting. Feel bad for the kids and new coach

It is very hard to believe that no one in the district was aware how holding the enrollment of 3 students could change their division alignment.  I don't know of any other district that does not enter students as soon as possible when they enroll simply because of the financial implications.

According to the Alto superintendent, the coach was let go sometime in the winter months...she says no one was aware of the enrollment issue until May so if everyone is correct on the timeline then Coach Gamble had nothing to do with it.

I missed the first part, but it seemed they had 3 students not enrolled. Apparently some conflict between the principal and counselor led to know communication between anyone.

Oh wow.  So now kids suffer.  Lord help them.

Thanks.  Not trying to start any rumors just wondering.

You would think it would be hard to get unanimous vote next year to move districts also. Way too many schedules affected.

Inexcusable!!!! And I don’t care who don’t like it! This is a complete let down from the powers that be. Period. Bless the kids that have been robbed over this. 

All this over three kids that prolly dont even play extracurricular activities… being that they showed up on October 21.  Not taking away from the three children…. There has got to be a better way to keep this from happening.

2 years from the playoffs from

football.

There’s nothing wrong with the process. Every other school handled their business. POINT BLANK WE DID NOT. And it’s the kids that ultimately suffer. It’s embarrassing.

It sounds like the administration doesn't have their ducks in a row. Shouldn't there be a running log of students enrolled? I feel bad for the kids, they are the victims here. Most of the coaches were previously at Alto, so they already had an idea for how incompetent the administration was.

Why not fine the school or forfeit a district game or something. Why punish the kids? And would the UIL allow Srs and Jrs to transfer freely since basically they have nothing to play for?

They could have forced div 1 district to take them.  But would have been kaos

Not only that, look at it from the perspective of a coach who might be on the playoff bubble in his district. What reason does he have to invite another potential playoff team to the party? He could be setting someone up to bump him out of the postseason.
