The board voted to accept an invitation for Okawville High School to join the Cahokia Conference in either the 2021-22 or 2022-23 school year.
The Cahokia Conference is seeking to expand, and several area schools have been invited to join. The proposed plan is to have three divisions comprised of six schools each, with Okawville joining the medium-sized school division with Carlyle, Chester, Red Bud, Sparta and Wesclin.
Okawville athletic director Jon Kraus said that he was in favor of accepting the invitation.
