TOPEKA --The high school fall sports season will start as scheduled, according to a vote Tuesday afternoon by the Kansas State High School Activities Association.

By a 5 to 4 vote, the executive board of the KSHSAA voted to not delay the fall football season.

"By action of the KSHSAA Executive Board (on) Tuesday, all fall activities will begin as scheduled for the 2020-21 school year," KSHSAA said in a press release. "This includes practice and competition."

According to the release, local school districts retain the right to modify the start dates for practice or competition based on their local and county health recommendations. The KSHSAA considerations for fall activities released on July 22 are still in effect.
