WIAA Amends Sanctions to Bellevue High School
9/25/2017

RENTON, Wash. – Sept. 25, 2017- The Executive Board of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) voted, Monday, to amend the sanctions that were previously imposed on Bellevue High School.

The Board lifted the remaining year on Bellevue High School football’s postseason ban, making the team eligible for postseason play beginning in 2017. The Board also voted to vacate the WIAA State Football playoff finishes by Bellevue High School in 2012, 2013 and 2014, citing a lack of institutional control during those years, while also imposing a $2,500 fine which will be applied to the WIAA coaches’ education and concussion management activities. In addition, Bellevue High School will be required to provide ongoing reports to the WIAA Executive Board to document institutional reform.

Bellevue High School representatives presented to the WIAA Executive Board on September 24, 2017, detailing the changes made to policies and procedures within the school and school district.

In making the announcement, WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said that the WIAA Board recognized the important strides made to address the concerns noted in the March 2016 independent investigative report, but the program’s violation of WIAA core principles and its failure to honor the rules of the organization’s 410 schools and 500,000 students could not go without consequences.

“The Board recognized that there has been a culture shift at Bellevue High School with the changes that have been made to that program,” said Colbrese. “The change in sanctions is an effort to address the institution that was responsible for the violations committed.”
