VHSL member schools are classified based on enrollment into three groups, A, AA, and AAA, with the smallest one-third of the 311 schools designated as Group A; the middle one-third designated as Group AA; and the largest one-third designated Group AAA. Each Group is comprised of four Regions. Each Region is comprised of three to five Districts. Each District is comprised of four to eleven schools.
A Redistricting and Reclassification (R&R) Committee comprised of one representative from each Region and a Superintendent chairperson meets in odd-numbered school years (2011-12) to formulate the next two-year plan. School size is based on September ADM numbers of the odd-numbered school year. The R&R Committee presents its plan to the VHSL Executive Committee for approval of the plan which is then implemented in the next odd-numbered school year.
