The S.C. High School League's realignment plan for next school year remains at least two more weeks from completion.
On Monday, the league's executive committee voted to have commissioner Jerome Singleton call a special meeting of the league's legislative assembly to clarify the process.
"They will say 'This is how we want it done,' " Singleton said.
The legislative assembly, consisting of one representative from each of the state's 32 regions, will meet Oct. 29.
Never miss a local story.
Their task will be to lay out who is responsible for what in the bi-annual process of dividing the state's high schools by enrollment.
In the past, the commissioner and his assistants have divided up the schools into four classes of eight regions each by using the 135-day enrollment figures from the previous school year.
Singleton and his staff did that over the summer, presenting a plan for 2010-12 that was approved by the executive committee.
That plan had, among other things, Chapin playing in a Class 3A region against schools from the Greenville-Spartanburg area.
But during the appeals process, Chapin questioned the authority of the league staff and executive committee in the realignment process, since the steps to the process are not laid out in the SCHSL constitution.
Later this month, the legislative assembly's task will be to specify who has what role.
