After weeks of back and forth, the Delaware State Board of Education gave the green light on a plan to allow high school sports to take place in the fall, though not all schools might participate.

Practices for high school sports are now slated to begin Sept. 28, but only one school district had opted to adopt the DIAA plan as of Thursday, WDEL reported.
