Copyright Compliance

The SDHSAA is determined to ensure that all its member schools are educated on their responsibility to stay compliant with copyright law. In 2017, the SDHSAA Board of Directors voted to require all Athletic/Activities Directors, Head Music Directors, and Head Competitive Cheer and Competitive Dance Coaches to complete the course, "Understanding Copyright and Compliance".
