COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s high schools are again looking into leveling the playing field.

The Ohio High School Athletic Association has approved a proposal that changes how schools are placed in tournaments in team sports. The plan is similar to a proposal that member schools voted down last spring.

In addition to the size of a school’s enrollment, new modifying factors may be applied to students on each roster on a sport-by-sport basis. The new measure would be in force for football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball if it is approved by high school principals in a referendum.

The OHSAA’s 825 member schools will vote on the proposal between May 1 and May 15. If it passes, the proposal is expected to take effect for the 2016-17 school year.
