The Kansas State High School Activities
Association's executive committee has approved two proposals aimed
at preventing discrimination against sports officials.

The association's nine-member board today agreed to add to its
handbook a statement and a rule requiring member schools to accept
qualified officials regardless of gender, race or religious
beliefs.

The proposals came after St. Mary's Academy near Topeka refused
to allow official Michelle Campbell to work a February boys
basketball game because she was a woman.

The association's board of directors will vote on the proposals
on April 11th. If approved, the new rule would go into effect for
the 2008-09 school year.
