In a meeting last week, the Georgia High School Association's reclassification committee made a new proposal involving Class A schools in which they would be split into an upper and lower tier based on the school attendance numbers that included public and private schools merging back together for the first time since 2012.

Making the split necessary was ten Class A private schools leaving the GHSA to go back to the Georgia Independent Schools Association (GISA). With those departures there would not be enough private schools to fill out a complete bracket once the playoffs arrive.

The proposal calls for all schools to use a multiplier that counts any student from out of the school's district to be counted three times to get their final numbers for reclassification. Some former Class A private schools will be bumped up to Class AA or AAA, while the remaining schools will be split into two divisions.

According to the plan, Charlton would play in the Class A Lower Division along with region foes Clinch County, Atkinson County, Echols County, and Turner County. But moving up to the Upper Division would be Irwin County and Brooks County.

The plan must still be approved by the GHSA's Executive committee and teams would be placed into region's after that occurs.
