Late 2014 saw the South Coast School Sport region undergo a major realignment of the districts. One of the major considerations was to address the issue of year 7 students moving to secondary schools and the flow on effects of 12 year old students in high school in the 10–12 year old representative sport program.
Other considerations were:
- fair and equitable distribution of student population across all districts
- to provide seamless arrangements for P–12
- alignment of all feeder schools
- to provide better communication channels and dissemination of information in and between primary, middle and secondary school sectors
- geographical locations.
In addition to the changes in district alignments, the terms, 'primary' and 'secondary' will disappear and be replaced by the terms 10–12 year olds and 13–19 year olds.
The 4 'new' districts are primarily an amalgamation of the previous districts with some additional fine-tuning. These districts each have their own Executive.
These districts are as follows:
