Superintendents,

 

To support the health and safety of our students and communities, UIL is suspending all UIL sanctioned contests due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Texas. Effective March 16th, all UIL interscholastic competition is suspended until March 29th. At this time, competitions may resume on March 30th. We are in contact with state authorities and will continue to monitor this situation. Should further adjustments be necessary, we will communicate them to you as soon as they are available.

 

During this time competitions are suspended, practices and rehearsals my be held at the discretion of the local school district.

 

At this time, we plan to continue to work to complete all of the state championship competitions that have not been completed. With school closure information continuing to change, please be patient as this is a very fluid situation. Again, we understand further adjustments may be necessary.

 

To facilitate this period of suspended activities, we are making several adjustments. Below are some details related to those adjustments:

 

MUSIC COMPETITIONS

The decision making process for region level events should be led by each music region executive committee, as facilitated by the music region executive secretary and in consultation with the UIL state office. 

 

All UIL music events scheduled between March 16th and 29th are to be suspended. Rehearsals and practices during the time of suspension may be held with approval from the school district. Beginning on March 30th events may resume with the considerations that follow. Any changes to these dates will be communicated as they become available.

 

Concert and Sight-Reading Evaluations – Regional Sites throughout the State: UIL recommends that these affected events be rescheduled to a date that would best suit the schools involved. Note, though, that due to advancement implications the rescheduling of any affected athletic and academic events will take precedence over the rescheduling of these music events. Therefore, it might be best to wait to reschedule these events until any affected athletic and academic events have been rescheduled. If the music region leadership determines that rescheduling is not feasible, these affected events may be cancelled, as there are no advancement implications for music concert and sight-reading evaluation events.

 

State Wind Ensemble Festival - May 9, 2020 at the Butler School of Music at UT Austin: CANCELLED.

 

State Solo and Ensemble Contest – May 30 and June 1 at four campuses in the Pflugerville ISD: No status change at the time of this email. Registration opens on April 1 and could be delayed. Information about this contest and any updates will be posted at https://www.uiltexas.org/music/tssec. 

 

 

 

ACADEMIC COMPETITIONS

District Academic and Speech

District Academic Meets, originally scheduled March 23-28, may now be held March 30 through April 11. This includes speaking events.

 

One-Act Play. Note: Sunday competitions are allowed.

  • One-Act Play District/Bi-District certification deadline, originally scheduled March 26, has been extended to April 7.
  • One-Act Play Area certification deadline, originally scheduled for April 4, has been extended to April 14.

 

Regional Academic, Speech and One-Act Play

Academic Regional Meets are still scheduled for April 17-18 and One-Act Play Regional dates remain April 15-18. Current sites are subject to change.

 

Robotics

Robotics FIRST Division FRC State scheduled April 2-4 has been postponed.

 

Scheduling your district competitions remain at your local administration’s discretion. Local administration is in the best position to make those decisions for their students and communities. We ask that schools and local District Executive Committees work collaboratively and reasonably with one another in scheduling and rescheduling district competitions safely.

 

Our office will work with meet directors and contest sites to reschedule as school districts allow. Meet directors should contact the UIL Academic Director David Stevens via email at dstevens@uiltexas.org to update the online entry system with the new date. If you have immediate concerns, do not hesitate to call (512) 965-2386.
