IESA Announcement on Tier 2 and Tier 3 Mitigations

January 15, 2021

Today’s announcement by the Governor has generated many questions. The included guidance is meant to answer some of the questions as to how this impacts IESA activities, our schools, and our students. Please be sure this is shared with all members of your administrative staff, coaches, A.D, and parents.

It is important to note that mitigations will be applied or lifted on a regional progression based on the metrics of each Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Region. It is important to check the Tier level of your region to determine participation opportunities.

At this time, Regions 1, 2, and 5 have moved to Tier 2. All other Regions remain in Tier 3.

For the activities of Bowling and Competitive Cheer, no decisions have been made regarding the State Series. For those schools who have been moved to Tier 2, regular season competition in these two lower risk activities may be conducted in accordance with the updated All Sports Policy.

The IESA Board of Directors will be meeting on January 29th to discuss how the regionally based mitigation progression impacts season length and the ability to conduct a state series in the remaining activities. In addition, the Board will discuss formats for Music and Scholastic Bowl.
