Championship Factor

Starting the 2020-21 school year, MSHSAA replaced the 35-percent multiplier applied to nonpublic schools with the Championship Factor, whereby district titles and state trophies from the six most recent years score points toward determining whether a nonpublic school is promoted as many as two classes. The rankings are as follows:
4 points for a state championship
3 points for a runner-up finish
2 points for a semi-final appearance (AKA finishing third or fourth)
1 point for a district title
Schools with 3-7 points are elevated one class, and those with at least eight are elevated two classes. Current Scholar Bowl figures are here.
Obviously, if a school is Class Five before promotion but can be elevated two classes, they'll only be elevated one class to Class Six for lack of a seventh class.

You may also recall that this was implemented alongside annual reclassification (instead of the previous two-year cycle) and doing away with the practice of doubling the population of single-gender schools when it comes to classifying programs for scholar bowl and music. (The latter also applies to speech/debate/forensics, but they only have one class of competition.)

I'll factor the past weekend's district championships in a follow-up post to determine who might be moving where next season.
