Fall 2020 UIL COVID-19 Update
The UIL is releasing revisions to the COVID-19 risk mitigation guidelines for marching band activities. This updated guidance is effective immediately until the first day of instruction of the school year or August 1st, whichever is earlier.
For complete details please see the UIL website, but updates are briefly summarized below:
As the public health situation changes, and/or if subsequent Executive Orders are issued by the Office of the Governor, these guidelines may be further modified. Schools should carefully review this guidance, as well as information released by TEA, when re-evaluating local plans for reducing the risk of spreading the virus. Schools should consider their local context related to the virus and plan accordingly.
At this time, UIL plans to begin fall competition seasons as scheduled on the UIL calendar. UIL will continue to work with state officials and monitor CDC and other federal guidance to determine any further modifications to this guidance.
Marching Band Update:
To provide some relief for lost practice time due to Covid-19, UIL is amending C&CR Section 1105(d)(1) for 2020 only by increasing the amount time that a band can spend on marching fundamentals between the end of the 2019-2020 school term and August 1 from 10 hours to 20 hours.
1105(d)(1): The members of this marching band or any of its components did not begin the marching preparation for this UIL contest presentation prior to August 1. In addition, no more than 20 hours of supervised instructional time was devoted to marching fundamentals between the end of the previous school term and August 1. Exception: Auxiliary camps, leadership training and preparation for special summer events such as civic parades, professional football game appearances and other non-competitive performances are not considered a violation of this limitation.
This information is also posted on the UIL COVID-19 website.
