DeVaughn then contacted Dave Stead, the executive director of the Minnesota State High School League. He listened with interest and explained that it would take a lot of support to get an amendment in place. He recommended that DeVaughn talk to superintendents of schools that were part of MSHSL (nearly every one in the state).
When Dave Stead shared the comment that he wasn't aware of any other state high school league having a visual arts category, DeVaughn said, "Good. Then Minnesota can be the Leader.

"It is needed to put a structure in place around an issue that already exists," argued Dave Stead, the executive director of the MSHSL, told WND.
Asked about how many transgender students were in Minnesota, Stead admitted to having "no idea."
But he insisted the policy is "necessary for our schools to have structure on this issue that exists."
When requested to clarify what exactly the issue was, he said: "The issue is that there are some students who present themselves differently from what they were assigned at birth.
"That's a national thing as you well know," Stead added. "So what we're doing is putting a structure there for schools."
He was aware of the growing opposition.
However, when asked about specific concerns raised by parents - boys who call themselves females changing or showering in girls' locker rooms, for example - he said "that's not realistic."
Stead explained that schools "make the determinations about eligibility, and they make determinations about what will happen in their school communities as well."
When pressed about the concerns of parents, he responded: "I've given you the answer that I would like to give you, and that is that we're putting a structure around an issue that already exists," repeating the talking point for the sixth time.
"The board provides guidance for schools," he concluded, pointing to the MSHSL's website for more information.
"We're providing guidance for schools around a particular issue that already exists. I've given you all of the information I need to do right now."
Another staffer at the organization reached before Stead, who said he was not authorized to speak on the record and was not familiar enough with the issue to comment, said numerous other states already had similar policies in place.

"What the board did was just respond to questions that had come from member schools about eligibility issues and put the provision in place with the fair hearing procedure when eligibility is denied and students want an opportunity to have someone review the information regarding their particular status," MSHSL Executive Director Dave Stead said.
