The Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association this week officially adopted a new policy aimed at curbing unsportsmanlike behavior during sporting events. 

OSSAA executive director David Jackson said in an email that the new policy is meant to cover incidents not addressed by current rules. 

“In education-based activities, it is our priority to ensure the safety of all involved as well as to provide a wholesome environment for students to participate,” Jackson said. "In an effort to keep egregious acts of unsporting conduct from escalating, the Board adopted a Policy to deal with such issues should they occur. It is our hope no school is ever put in the position to implement the penalty associated with the new policy.”
