Never mind

The negotiations between the Florida High School Athletic Association and Florida Parents for Athletic Equity, which is being represented by Nancy Hogshead-Makar, have apparently broken down because the announcement that was expected Friday never happened. Early reports, that we reported here, said that FHSAA would offer two options regarding reduction of interscholastic athletic conferences that would not disproportionately affect girls.
Also, apparently, Roger Dearing, director of the FHSAA, was ready to rescind altogether the whole plan to reduce contests.
Hogshead-Makar said she did not what happened. Dearing could not be reached for comment and is on vacation next week. Hogshead-Makar is still giving FHSAA until Monday, as originally agreed, to address the issue. She also has said she will not file a lawsuit if FHSAA calls an emergency meeting for June 26 or before.
