OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -

A bill in the Oklahoma Senate would create a separate classification for large school districts that have only one high school.

Senate Bill 1599 was originally proposed earlier this month to cover appropriations and budget procedures. But a committee inserted an amendment into the bill on Monday, April 30, 2018 that would go much further.

Here's the amendment inserted Monday morning:

"District alignments, tournaments or contests in which the largest class of schools is exclusively comprised of high schools in which the average daily attendance is greater than two thousand two hundred fifty (2,250) students and the school district has only one (1) high school." 

In effect, the bill would require the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association to create a separate classification for Broken Arrow, Jenks, Owasso, Mustang, Tulsa Union and Yukon.

Monday evening the Joint Committee on Appropriations and Budget voted it down 10-8.
