Combined Schools Application
WGI recently changed their policy for those schools combining members from multiple schools within a school district. As a WGI circuit partner we follow all WGI policies and will be reviewing each combined program on a case-by-case basis. If your scholastic program combines students from multiple schools, please read the information below and then follow the link to the application so we can review your situation.

All participants of any group competing in any scholastic class must have approval for participation in any AIA-sanctioned event by the administration of the sponsoring school(s). Scholastic groups are defined as follows:

Single School:
A group whose total membership are students from the same school, schools that directly feed into that school, or home-schooled students that reside within the school district boundaries. (You DO NOT need to fill out this application if you are a single school unit)

Combined School:
A group in any scholastic class may apply for approval to combine students from multiple schools within a school district under the following guidelines:

• Groups combining students from multiple schools within a school district may not have another group in the same division (Color Guard, Percussion, or Winds) participating locally with AIA unless there are extenuating circumstances.
• School districts with multiple competitive field marching band programs within the district will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for approval to combine students from multiple schools.
• If approved, all combined groups must compete using the school district name only.
• Scholastic groups utilizing students from parochial, vocational, or charter schools, must apply for approval under combined school guidelines.

AIA & WGI will have the final determination on whether a group will be permitted to combine students from multiple schools.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
If your application is accepted, a letter from the principals of the participating schools approving the combined program will be required by January 1st, 2020.
This application must be submitted by October 26th, 2019 if you would like your application reviewed before the November 1st registration date.
What is the Proposed Name of your group? (WGI/AIA policy is that Combined Schools must use the district name, not an individual HS. Please enter the proposed name of your group with this in mind. If there is a situation where a district name is not appropriate, AIA will consider alternatives but there will be further requirements before your combined school group is approved.) *
