The Minnesota State High School League administers a program of competitive athletic, musical, speech, and dramatics activities at district, region, and state levels. The league is a voluntary association of 433 public and 49 private schools. This monograph reports on a study of the league in regard to two questions: (1) Are policy-making and decision making mechanisms adequate to ensure the league's overall accountability? and (2) Are changes needed to make the league more efficient, effective, and accountable? The study examined the league's organization, budget, organizational status, and policies and procedures. It was concluded that the league's internal mechanisms for accountability are weak and the league lacks adequate outside oversight. Recommendations are made for providing better outside oversight and improving accountability. (JD)
