Welcome to CIF Watchdog! Thank you for visiting.
This site has been created in response to a long fought (and still going) battle undertaken this fall with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Sac-Jaoquin section. I’d been told early on in the process by people who had run-ins with CIF that the transfer eligibility we sought would be rejected, yet still believed the CIF eligibility process would be fair and quick.
Months later, after being subject to an incredibly unfair and biased process and learning of scores of others around the state being treated the same, I am compelled to seek change at CIF. Not change at the individual level. Not change at the local level. But change at the state level.
CIF needs oversight and transparency in its operation. It doesn’t have it now, but I seek to lead an effort that will bring about change and restore respect to the organization an organization that, truth be told, has little when it comes to the way it conducts business.
