The Kansas Board of Education’s decision Wednesday to not endorse Gov. Laura Kelly’s request to open schools after Labor Day, will have an impact on how the Kansas State High School Athletics Association (KSHSAA) will move forward. 

KSHSAA originally planned to release a return-to-play schedule on July 17, but withdrew that time schedule when the Governor announced her post-Labor Day request. 

The tie vote, 5-5, by state BOE members means the decision of when to open schools is left up to individual school districts.
