10 CALIFORNIA INTERSCHOLASTIC FEDERATION CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS The CIF has a proud heritage in providing equitable athletic competition for 1,342 high schools in California. Since its beginnings in 1914, the CIF has grown to become the largest youth agency in the nation, serving more than 6000,000 young studentathletes each year who participate in the interscholastic athletic activities of California's secondary schools. As a problem-solving organization, the CIF retains its original responsibility to enforce the rules, but has expanded its duties to include much more. The CIF offers educational programs in coaching education, parent education, and has adopted the principles of Pursuing Victory With Honorsm as the cornerstone of the organization. California has trained more coaches than any other state and has continued to expand, adapt and modify this educational program to better serve the needs of schools across the state. Pursuing Victory With Honorsm is a character education program that has been received enthusiastically by member schools. In fact, more than 1,000 schools have also adopted the program and continue to change the very nature of athletics on the fields, courts and pools across California's high schools. The CIF is also a service organization to its 1,342 member school base providing awards, honor programs and distributing information on up-to-date health and safety issues. The CIF is organized under the State Department of Education and is governed by the CIF Federated Council, which consists of high school superintendents, principals, athletic directors, educators, and allied organizations. Ten semi-autonomous, geographical Sections make up the CIF. NORTHERN SECTION CONSTITUTION AND BYLAWS GENERAL PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT The schools of the Northern Section of the CIF believe that broad programs of interscholastic athletics has a high potential for contributions to the development of youth which are in harmony with the major objectives of our secondary schools. Among these values are development of scholarship, health, strength, agility, coordination skills, recreational interests, physical fitness, habits of clean living, inculcation of sportsmanship, fair play, honesty, and respect for rules and authority, development of qualities of cooperation, teamwork, competition, leadership, initiative, responsibility, subordination of self to the welfare of the team and school, self respect, courtesy for others, perseverance and courage. The outcomes of these objectives are valuable both to the individual and to our society. They are often achieved most readily through participation in athletics, and perhaps in greatest degree in the spirited competition engendered in the interscholastic athletics program. It must be emphasized that these values can be assured only when the competition is controlled under rules, policies, and leadership which place the realization of such values and that of scholastic attainment above all other considerations. The purpose of the Northern Section CIF is to promote these values through the organization of member schools into the Northern Section of the California Interscholastic Federation. 10

11 HISTORICAL SKETCH STATE The California Interscholastic Federation was organized at a high school athletic convention held at the YMCA Field House, Los Angeles, on March 28, The convention followed a number of conferences in which there had been agreement that high school athletic contests to be of value to the schools and the participants should be organized under the control of the responsible head of the schools. The general purpose of the State Federation is to make possible uniform practices in conducting athletics in all parts of the state, to centralize control, and to foster clean and sportsmanlike competition and conduct in athletic contest. For purposes of administration, California is divided into the following ten sections: Central, Central Coast, Los Angeles, North Coast, Northern, Oakland, Sac-Joaquin, San Diego, San Francisco, and Southern. The Southern Section has four representatives; Los Angeles, Northern, Oakland, San Diego, and San Francisco have two representatives, while the other four sections have three each on the State Federated Council. The State Federated Council has complete control of all state championships in high school athletics and may specify all details as to methods and places for conducting the contests. NORTHERN SECTION Schools in the Northern Section CIF were once part of the old Northern California High School Athletic League (NCHSAL). Because of its size, it became difficult to administer and as a result, in 1942, the NCHSAL was divided into the Northern Section and the Sac-Joaquin Section. Chet Nesbit, Principal of Oroville High School took a leadership role in the formation of the new Northern Section and served as Section Secretary and Commissioner from 1942 to John Decatur of Sutter who served for five years succeeded Nesbit. In 1957, Ed Hendrix assumed the Commissioner duties and served the Northern Section in that capacity for the next 23 years. Upon the retirement of Hendrix in 1980, Gregg LeMaster of Arbuckle was elected to the position. Gregg served until his death in January of Darold Adamson was appointed in the Spring of 1986 and served until his retirement in July of 1999 from his Chico office. Tom Schroeder was then selected as the new Commissioner and served for seven years. Tom had been the Dean of Students and Athletic Director at Pierce High School for 27 years and moved the NSCIF office back to Arbuckle as it was during Gregg LeMaster s tenure. In 2006 Elizabeth Liz Kyle, Principal from Fall River High School was selected as the new Northern Section Commissioner. The Section office was moved to Red Bluff, where space is rented from the district. In 2010, the Section Office moved to Chico. During the NSCIF s 70 years of existence, the geography of the section has remained basically the same. On occasion, some changes have been made involving member schools located on the perimeter of the section boundaries. At the present time there are 71 member schools in the Northern Section. In the State CIF Constitution as in this NSCIF Constitution are set forth the purposes, organization, and administration of the structure of the CIF and the Northern Section (one of the ten original sections of the State Federation), as embodied in the constitutions, bylaws and procedures. 11

CIF/NSCIF OPERATING PRINCIPLES/PURSUING VICTORY WITH HONOR A. The CIF/NSCIF Operating Principles are the 16 principles of Pursuing Victory With Honor program as follows: (1) The essential elements of character building and ethics in CIF sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and six core principles: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these six pillars of character. (2) It s the duty of school boards, superintendents, school administrators, parents and school sports leadership -including coaches, athletic administrators, program directors and game officials - to promote sportsmanship and foster good character by teaching, enforcing, advocating and modeling these six pillars of character. (3) To promote sportsmanship and foster the development of good character, school sports programs must be conducted in a manner that enhances the academic, emotional, social, physical and ethical development of student-athletes and teaches them positive life skills that will help them become personally successful and socially responsible. (4) Participation in school sports programs is a privilege, not a right. To earn that privilege, student-athletes must abide by the rules and they must conduct themselves, on and off the field, as positive role models who exemplify good character. (5) School boards, superintendents, school administrators, parents and school sports leadership shall establish standards for participation by adopting and enforcing codes of conduct for coaches, athletes, parents and spectators. (6) All participants in high school sports must consistently demonstrate and demand scrupulous integrity and observe and enforce the spirit as well as the letter of the rules. 12

13 (7) The importance of character, ethics and sportsmanship should be emphasized in all communications directed to student-athletes and their parents. (8) School boards, superintendents, school administrators, parents and school sports leadership must ensure that the first priority of their student-athletes is a serious commitment to getting an education and developing the academic skills and character to succeed. (9) School boards, superintendents, principals, school administrators and everyone involved at any level of governance in the CIF must maintain ultimate responsibility for the quality and integrity of CIF programs. Such individuals must assure that education and character development responsibilities are not compromised to achieve sports performance goals and that the academic, social, emotional, physical and ethical well-being of student-athletes is always placed above desires and pressures to win. (10) All employees of member schools must be directly involved and committed to the academic success of student-athletes and the character-building goals of the school. (11) Everyone involved in competition including parents, spectators, associated study body leaders, and all auxiliary groups have a duty to honor the traditions of the sport and to treat other participants with respect. Coaches have a special responsibility to model respectful behavior and the duty to demand that their student-athletes refrain from disrespectful conduct including verbal abuse of opponents and officials, profane or belligerent trash-talking, taunting and inappropriate celebrations. (12) School boards, superintendents, and school administrators of CIF member schools must ensure that coaches, whether paid or voluntary, are competent to coach. Training or experience may determine minimal competence. These competencies include basic knowledge of: 1) The character building aspects of sports, including techniques and methods of teaching and reinforcing the core values comprising sportsmanship and good character. 2) The physical capabilities and limitations of the age group coached as well as first aid. 3) Coaching principles and the rules and strategies of the sport. (13) Because of the powerful potential of sports as a vehicle for positive personal growth, a broad spectrum of school sports experiences should be made available to all of our diverse communities. (14) To safeguard the health of athletes and the integrity of the sport, school sports programs must actively prohibit the use of alcohol, tobacco, drugs and performance enhancing substances, as well as demand compliance with all laws and regulations, including those related to gambling and the use of drugs. (15) Schools that offer athletic programs must safeguard the integrity of their programs. Commercial relationships should be continually monitored to ensure against inappropriate exploitation of the school s name or reputation. There should be no undue influence of commercial interests. In addition, sports programs must be prudent, avoiding undue dependency on particular companies or sponsors. (16) The profession of coaching is a profession of teaching. Along with the mental and physical dimensions of their sport, coaches, through words and example, must also strive to build the character of their athletes by teaching them to be trustworthy, respectful, responsible, fair, caring and good citizens.

Factors could include, but are not limited to, geography/transportation issues, school size, competitive equity, and levels of program (Frosh, JV, Varsity). A discussion of all proposals identified on Google.docs. No voting will take place at the first meeting. All proposals will be reviewed and taken back to individual sites for further review. While schools should be prepared to vote for proposals that benefit their school, they should also be prepared to vote for proposals they can minimally support. Review of Voting Protocol to be prepared to vote at the next meeting. Voting Protocol: The goal for each conference should be to gain consensus, which may require multiple meetings. At the second meeting all proposals reviewed at the first meeting will be voted on. The sample Tally Sheet provided in the NSCIF Constitution Appendix section should be used to record all votes. The following voting method must be used by all conferences: 1. Thumbs up Our school likes it. 2. Thumb sideways Our school can live with it. 3. Thumbs down Our school cannot live with it. *All representatives must vote, and voters indicating a thumbs down vote must be prepared to explain the reasoning behind the vote and participate in a solution that could result in consensus. Possible Scenarios: Scenario 1- if a proposal gets unanimous thumbs up it would be the Conference realignment recommendation to the Board of Managers. If there are multiple plans with all thumbs up (after voting on all plans) all other plans would be eliminated. Voting by elimination, each school would put the remaining plans in order and rank them accordingly (1 as their first choice, 2 as their second choice, etc.). The plan with the lowest combined score would be the conference recommendation to the Board of Managers. If there is still a tie the proposal(s) with the highest (biggest number) score(s) would be eliminated and the process would be repeated. Situation 2- If any proposal gets all thumbs up and thumbs sideways that would be the Conference realignment recommendation to the Board of Managers. If no plans receive all the thumbs up and sideways thumbs, the Chair will eliminate all options which receive less than half the votes and attempt one last round of voting. The Conference Realignment Chair may call future meetings to continue to facilitate the voting process to result in a recommendation to the NSCIF Board of Managers. Lack of a recommendation each Conference will not automatically result in status quo or current alignment. However, status quo or the current alignment may be one of the proposals developed and identified in the Google.docs process. Starting with the 4 th meeting if nothing gains consensus during the first 2 voting meetings (meeting 2+3 overall), with each round of thumbs voting all proposals will continue to be eliminated if the proposal receives less than half the votes. Also the proposal with the fewest votes thumbs up, will be eliminated (be sure to continue to use the tally sheet on all votes to have an accurate record). When the voting results in the final three opinions and there is still no consensus, the voting will return to voting by rating all 3 of the proposals (1,2 +3). The proposal with the least overall points and the proposal with most top votes (#1 s) will be kept. If it is the same proposal (that had the least points and the most #1 votes) that becomes the proposal sent to the Board of Managers. If there are still two options left there would be one more vote using elimination voting (1 and 2) instead of consensus. 16

The period of suspension or other penalty shall be left to the discretion of the CIF governing body that has jurisdiction of the matter where the penalty is not fixed. (2) The Executive Director or Section Commissioner shall, at his/her discretion, determine whether information about any possible violation of the CIF or Section Constitution or Bylaws is sufficiently reliable to justify further investigation. The Executive Director or Section Commissioner shall also, at his/her discretion, determine whether to conduct any investigation of possible violations of the Constitution or Bylaws as well as the nature and extent of any investigation that may be conducted and the procedures to be used in any such investigation. Factors to be considered by the Executive Director or Section Commissioner in making these determinations may include, but are not limited to: a. The seriousness of the alleged violation; b. Any other factor the Executive Director or Section Commissioner may deem relevant in making these decisions (3) A violation of the State CIF or Section Constitution or Bylaws will not result in any investigation or penalty if it is inadvertent and the school first learns or and reports the violation after the conclusion of the following year s playoffs in the sport in which the violation occurred. If it is determined that a school or any of its administrators or coaches had knowledge of a violation or possible violation of the CIF or Section Constitution or Bylaws and failed to promptly self report as it is required to do as a condition of membership, or that a delay in self reporting occurred as a result of a failure by the school to properly monitor its athletic program as required as a condition of membership, the provisions of this section shall not apply.

(4) Any school under suspension, if it has restricted its athletic program to intramural athletics for the period of suspension, may be reinstated by the CIF Executive Committee or Section Board of Managers upon application made in writing twenty (20) days in advance of the time it desires to be reinstated, to the Executive Director or Section Commissioner by the principal of the school and by the Board of Education under which the school operates.
