Penalty Ruling Policy
In order to better accommodate the media for information on penalty rulings, the Executive Committee chose to adopt a concrete policy on how the LHSAA will issue information to media outlets and the public.
Each penalty ruling will be released to the media 24 hours after the LHSAA has notified the school(s) involved in the infraction. This will allow schools adequate time to inform and notify whomever they need to about the violation before it is open to the public.
Due to liability issues and potential legal ramifications with information involving minors, the Association will not release any individual’s name or personal information.
