Green High School is getting closer to deciding what it wants to do with regards to its athletics.
The options are staying in the Suburban League or joining in the Federal League.
“We are meeting with the Suburban League and the Federal League on Thursday,” Principal Cindy Brown said Monday. “That is when we can get everybody together. We hope to make a decision as soon as we can. This is an important decision. We want to do what is best for the kids.”
When asked if she expected a decision by mid-to-late-August, she said: “There is no deadline. We would hope that we would come to a conclusion soon.”
Brown said representatives from the Suburban League and Federal League will come Thursday to talk at Green.
Green is a charter member of the Suburban League, which was started in 1949. The original five members of the league are Copley, Greensburg (now Green), Hudson, Manchester and Northfield-Macedonia (now Nordonia).
The Suburban League currently has eight members: Green, Copley, Nordonia, Cloverleaf, Highland, Revere, Tallmadge and Wadsworth.
The Federal League has six members: Canton McKinley, GlenOak, Jackson, Lake, North Canton Hoover and Perry.
There have been discussions about possibly having two conferences/divisions within the Suburban League based no enrollment, a larger and a smaller.
A total of 13 schools have been linked to possibly joining the Suburban League. The schools are: Hudson, Stow, Cuyahoga Falls, Twinsburg, Medina, Barberton, Aurora, Kent Roosevelt, Kenston, Brecksville-Broadview Heights, North Royalton, Solon and Ravenna.
