OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association spent nearly 6 percent of its budget last fiscal year on legal fees, but officials say they expect that number to drop this year.

According to The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1jRJdw1 ), the association spent more than $316,000 on legal fees last fiscal year. But Executive Director Ed Sheakley says he expects a decrease, thanks to a rule change that allows a student to choose a high school regardless of where the student’s family lives.

Before, a student who transferred or chose a school outside of his or her residence area had to demonstrate that the change was caused by an unavoidable hardship to be eligible for varsity activities.

The association oversees extracurricular activities for nearly every public school in Oklahoma for grades seven through 12.
