Proposal No. 1

2005-06
Add Article 1.431 – Provide Employees

Submitted by John Milroy, Principal, Aurora (Marmion Academy)
Add Article 1.431 to read:
The office of “Assistant Executive Director for Compliance” shall be created to investigate reports of By-law violations of member schools. Specific attention shall be focused on questions of eligibility.

Rationale
The institution of the multiplier will not address the real or perceived concern of illegal or inappropriate recruiting of student-athletes. If there are schools that are breaking the IHSA By-laws, an investigation should be undertaken, and, if necessary, severe punishments should be applied to the offending school(s).

Proposal No. 2

2005-06
Add Article 1.451 and 1.452 – Statewide Interscholastic Activities

Submitted by Thomas Trengove, Principal, Lemont (H.S.)


Add Article 1.451 to read:
The Board of Directors shall have complete authority, subject to the provisions of the Constitution and By-laws, to organize and conduct separate statewide interscholastic activities for all boundaried schools.
Add Article 1.452 to read:
The Board of Directors shall have complete authority, subject to the provisions of the Constitution and By-laws, to organize and conduct separate statewide interscholastic activities for all non-boundaried schools.
A non-boundaried school is defined as any private school, charter school, lab school, magnet school, residential school, and any public school in a multi-high school district that does not accept students from a fixed portion of the district.

Rationale
1. We have attempted modifications to our rules with the goal of creating competitive equity between boundaried and non-boundaried schools.
2. Non-boundaried schools have been resistant to attempts to modify our current system as demonstrated by the recent lawsuit filed against the Association by 32 private schools.

Proposal No. 3

Add By-law 2.160 -- Classification

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)


Add By-law 2.160 to read:
2.160 Only the classification policy presently in effect which doubles the enrollment of single sex schools and sets football enrollments as written in Policy 17, Classification System, shall be imposed on member schools. No further multiplier of any type shall be used on any member school.
Rationale
The establishment of this by-law will prevent a very unsound educational policy to exist. The maintaining of the bar of achievement in education is a goal that must be protected by all educational institutions. Counting of one group or class of student athletes at a lower percentage than another group or class marginalizes them and creates an artificial environment that prevents groups or classes to reach the standard of achievement that is stated in the IHSA mission statement. The standard of excellence of Illinois student-athletes would not be enriched by any type of multiplier, only diminished.

If approved, this by-law will take effect on February 1, 2006.

Proposal No. 4

2005-06

Add By-law 2.160 -- Classification

Submitted by Curt Christenson, Official Representative, Normal (University)


Add By-law 2.160 to read:
Guidelines and regulations for classification of non-boundaried schools are applied to all non-boundaried schools. Non-boundaried schools include any private school, charter school, lab school, magnet school, residential school, and any public school in a multi-high school district that does not accept students from a fixed portion of the district.

Rationale
There is little justification for developing and applying a policy to a small subset of member schools. Rather, any policy that is developed by a governing body should be applied uniformly to all schools that share the same identified characteristics. Non-boundaried schools include all private, parochial, charter and laboratory schools and every public school district that offers school choice as an option. This position is consistent with the findings of the Public-Private Task Force Survey (December 17, 2004). According to that survey, 70% of the responding schools agreed with the statement, “All (emphasis added) schools without boundaries, whether private or public, should be subject to a multiplier.”

Proposal No. 6

2005-06

Add By-law 2.170 -- Classification

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)


Add By-law 2.170 to read:
2.170 When any IHSA member school advances to the semifinals or further in any sport during the IHSA state series for three consecutive years, that member school’s sports team will be moved up one class in only that sport for the following year. This process would continue until the member school’s sports team reached the highest class. When any IHSA member school has moved up one or more classes in a particular sport and then, in the next two consecutive years does not advance to the final eight in that state series, that school’s team will move down one class for the following school year. This process would continue until the member school’s sports team reaches their original class based upon school population.
Rationale
The establishment of a “success quotient” is a very sound, educational concept because it is based upon a school’s individual sport, not the entire program. This will allow the bar of achievement to be raised in an appropriate manner that compliments the capability of the student-athletes involved in the school’s programs. This proposal would require the increase of the two class system in all sports except for football, music and competitive cheerleading to a four class system.
Proposal No. 7

2005-06


Add By-law 2.180 -- Classification

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)


Add By-law 2.180 to read:
2.180 The number of classes in IHSA state series sports would be increased from the present two classes to three or four classes based upon the criteria as stated in Policy 19, the Criteria for Increasing Classes, in the IHSA Handbook. Exceptions to this increase are boys football, music and competitive cheerleading.
Rationale
The increase in classification to three or four is an important compliment of the establishment of the “success quotient” (By-law 2.170) that has been proposed during this legislative session. The increased classes will provide for a more diverse experience for the student-athlete and is a sound educational policy. The increase to three or four classes enhances the opportunities that student-athletes will encounter while maintaining the bar of achievement at a high level.

Amend By-law 3.043 -- Transfer

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)
By-law 3.043 currently reads:
3.043 In addition, a student who transfers attendance from one high school to another high school pursuant to these by-laws, shall be ineligible unless:

Revise By-law 3.043 to read:



3.043 In addition, a student who transfers attendance from one high school to another high school pursuant to these by-laws, shall be ineligible only for varsity and state series competition unless:

Rationale
There are numerous situations where the student may transfer from one member school to another member school that are not related to interscholastic competition. There are situations were a student needs a fresh start or social problems exist and a change of school is needed. This revision establishes a more equitable by-law for the overall good of the student that is at risk.
Proposal No. 9

2005-06
Amend By-law 3.054 – Participation Limitations

Submitted by Stephen Marth, Principal, Lisle (Benet Academy)
By-law 3.054 currently reads:

3.054 Any student in a member school, eligible in all respects under the terms of these By-laws, may be entered to represent that school as an individual in Association-sponsored meets or tournaments under the terms and conditions for that particular event. However, only schools which have an established school team which has engaged in at least six (6) interscholastic contests in that sport during the current season or, in the case of boys baseball, boys golf, boys tennis, girls softball, girls golf, and girls tennis, during the preceding IHSA recognized season in that sport, may participate in team competition in Association-sponsored meets or tournaments.
Amend By-law 3.054 to read:
3.054 Any student in a member school, eligible in all respects under the terms of these By-laws, may be entered to represent that school as an individual in Association-sponsored meets or tournaments under the terms and conditions for that particular event. However, only schools which have an established school team which has engaged in at least six (6) interscholastic contests in that sport during the current season or, in the case of boys baseball, boys golf, boys tennis, girls softball, girls golf, and girls tennis, during the preceding IHSA recognized season in that sport, may participate in team competition in Association-sponsored meets or tournaments. In addition, only those athletes who participate in at least six (6) interscholastic contests with their school team during the current season (as defined above) will be eligible to participate in the state series. Exceptions due to illness and injury must be verified in writing by the athletic director and principal and submitted to the IHSA prior to the start of the state series.
Rationale
The current by-law permits students to continue participating in a lesson program through the season (By-law 3.111). They may continue these programs and not participate with the team until the state tournament series begins. This student-athlete may sit out the entire season, not compete with the high school team during the season, and only participate in the state series. These can deprive other students who have competed with the team during the regular season the opportunity to be part of the state series competition.

Amend By-law 3.070 – Recruiting of Athletes

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)


By-law 3.070 currently reads:
3070 In the enforcement of the rule, member schools shall be responsible for any violation committed by any person associated with the school, including principals, assistant principals, coaches, teachers, any other staff members or students, or any organization having any connection to the school.

Revise By-law 3.070 to read:



3.070 In the enforcement of the rule, member schools shall be responsible for any violation committed by any person associated with the school, including principals, assistant principals, coaches, teachers, any other staff members or students, or any organizations such as parent clubs and booster clubs having any connection to the school.

Rationale
This change no longer puts a school or school district in a legal situation that cannot be directly controlled because it spells out the concept this is implied by the term “any organization” in the last phrase of the original version.

Proposal No. 11

2005-06
Amend By-law 3.073 – Recruiting of Athletes

Submitted by Don Sebestyen, Principal, New Lenox (Providence Catholic)


By-law 3.073 currently reads:
3073 It shall also be a violation of this rule to induce or attempt to induce or encourage any prospective student to attend any member school for the purpose of participating in athletics even when special remuneration or inducement is not given.
It shall also be a violation of this rule to induce or attempt to induce or encourage any prospective student to attend any member school for the purpose of participating in athletics even when special remuneration or inducement is not given.
Schools are not prohibited from conducting academic recruitment programs, programs which may include information concerning the school’s extracurricular offerings. However, such recruitment programs must be designed to provide an overview of the academic and extracurricular programs offered by a school and are not to be used as a subterfuge for recruiting students for athletic purposes. Such general recruitment programs permissible under this rule shall be carried out under the following guidelines:
• With the exception of an open house conducted at a member school, no member of a school’s coaching staff may present or distribute the school’s information to students not yet in high school unless the students are incoming freshmen that have completed the initial enrollment process for the school.

• Any information presented or distributed shall be limited to the academic and extracurricular offerings provided by the school. The information may include a description of the athletic facilities available at the school.

• Any information presented or distributed shall not imply, in any manner, that the member school’s athletic program is better or more accomplished than any other member school’s athletic program.

• Any information presented or distributed shall not imply, in any manner, that it would be more advantageous for a prospective student athlete to attend a member school over any other school because of its extracurricular programs.

• Information may be presented or distributed only at an open house conducted at a member school or at a school housing grades below the ninth from which the member school can normally expect enrollment.

Revise By-law 3.073 to read:

• Information may be presented or distributed only at an open house conducted at a member school or at a school housing grades below the ninth from which the member school can normally expect enrollment.

Rationale
The change in the first bullet point will permit all schools (public and private) to go about the normal business of working with students which is required prior to registration. It will not penalize public or private schools for employing a coach in an official capacity that deals with the normal business of working with students prior to registration.

Amend By-law 3.106 – Independent Team Participation

Submitted by Stephen Marth, Principal, Lisle (Benet Academy)


By-law 3.106 currently reads:
3.106 To be eligible for a school team in a given sport, students must cease non-school practice and competition in that sport no later than five days after the date on which the school team engages in its first practice or tryout in that sport.
Amend By-law 3.106 to read:
3.106 To be eligible for a school team in a given sport, students must cease non-school practice and competition in that sport no later than: five days after the date on which the school team engages in its first practice or tryout in that sport.
For bracketed sports: five days after the date on which the school team engages in its first practice or tryout in that sport.
For non-bracketed sports: the date on which the school team engages in its first interscholastic contest in that sport.
Rationale
Non-bracketed sports (those that qualify individually for the state tournament series) have become the target for losses of student-athletes due to the restrictions within the high school season. These sports doe not have the outside team structure that a bracketed sport (e.g. basketball or soccer) would have. The students are competing as an individual at non-school competitions. The top student-athlete is opting to not play the high school season because of the current restrictions on their ability to compete in these non-school competitions. Changing this by-law gives these student-athletes the ability to compete in their sport and join the high school team by the first competition. This will give schools more of a chance to keep these student-athletes on the high school teams.

Revise By-laws 3.153 and 3.155 – Special Provisions for Summer Participation

Submitted by Vince McGuire, Principal, Rockford (Boylan)
By-law 3.153 currently reads:
3.153 Persons who coach a sport at a member school may have a maximum of 25 days of contact in that sport with students from that school during the period between the last day of classes or Monday of Week 49 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar (whichever date is earlier) in the spring each year and Saturday of Week 4 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar. Students may have a maximum of 25 days of contact per sport with persons who coach that sport at the school they attend during the same time period. A day of contact is defined as any date on which any coaching or instruction in the skills and techniques of any sport takes place. These limitations apply to all sports except Baseball and Softball. An exception may be made by the Executive Director under the guidelines adopted by the Board of Directors for competitions sponsored and conducted directly by the National Governing Body for the sport.
By-law 3.155 currently reads:
3.155 Schools may conduct coaching schools, camps or clinics during the summer, provided:
a) The event is conducted between the close of school in the spring and Saturday of Week 4 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar;

b) The event is open to any high school student and is not restricted to students who have been or expect to be high school athletes; and,

c) The event provides common instruction and activities for all participants.

Rationale
By ending the coaching capability one day early, you eliminate high school teams playing any tournament the last weekend of the N.C.A.A. evaluation period. This empowers A.A.U. coaches to have our players one additional weekend since we cannot transport or coach our players that day.

Add By-law 3.170 -- Classification

Submitted by Jay Thompson, Official Representative, Harrisburg and Terry Gutshall, Manlius (Bureau Valley)


Add By-law 3.170 to read:
The IHSA Board of Directors has the complete authority to establish and implement policies to determine the number of classes of competition in IHSA sports and activities and to classify schools participating in such sports/activities except as follows:
An enrollment multiplier of 1.65 will be added to all non-boundaried schools.
The definition of a non-boundaried school is: Any private school, charter school, lab school, magnet school, residential school, and any public school in a multi-high school district that does not accept students from a fixed portion of the district.
Classifications shall be determined on an annual basis.

Rationale
1. The implementation of a multiplier will help create more competitive equity between boundaried and non-boundaried schools.
2. Non-boundaried schools have an inherent advantage due to their ability to attract students from multiple school districts.


If approved, this by-law will take effect on February 1, 2006.

Add By-law 3.170 -- Classification

Submitted by Greg Bradley, Principal, Mt. Zion


Each student living within the boundary of a high school’s attendance area shall count as one student toward the high school’s official IHSA enrollment. Each student living outside the high school’s attendance area shall count as three students toward their enrollment.
Non-boundaried high schools shall use the boundary of the public high school’s attendance area in which they are located. Each student attending the non-boundaried school living within the public high school’s attendance area shall count as one student toward the high school’s official IHSA enrollment. Each student attending the non-boundaried school living outside the public high school’s attendance area shall count as three students toward their enrollment.
The definition of a non-boundaried school is: Any private school, charter school, lab school, magnet school, residential school, and any public school in a multi-high school district that does not accept students from a fixed portion of the district.
Rationale
This method of classification will help level the playing field.

This proposal is fair and equitable since it applies to all member schools.



If approved, this by-law will take effect on February 1, 2006.
Proposal No. 17

2005-06
Add By-law 3.170 -- Classification

Submitted by Jason Woodworth, Official Representative, Danville (Schlarman)

Add By-law 3.170 to read:
All students enrolled in non-boundaried schools will be counted one for one if they reside within the public school district boundary where the private non-boundaried school resides or they attended a non-boundaried school in 7th and 8th grade. In public school districts with multiple public high schools, the same rules would apply to non-boundaried schools that apply to the multiple high schools within the public high school boundary. All other students will be counted two for one.
Rationale
Students who attended a private non-boundaried school at least two years before they enroll in the high school should not be penalized for the purpose of state classification. Non-boundaried schools do have an advantage in enrolling students outside the boundary of the public school, but this advantage is lessened if these students have been in a private school system before they come to the high school. These parents would probably have not sent their son/daughter to the public school because they have made a commitment to private education for at least two years before high school.
All non-boundaired schools in the state are not the same based upon their size and their location in the state. This change would be consistent no matter if you are a small school of 200 in downstate Illinois or a school of 1000 in suburban Chicago.
Proposal No. 18

2005-06
Add By-law 3.170 -- Classification

Submitted by Dan Rourke, Official Representative, Chatham (Glenwood)

Add By-law 3.170 to read:
Non-boundaried schools are required to create their own “athletic district.” The “athletic district” shall be established for a three year period. For the purpose of establishing an IHSA enrollment, all non-boundaried schools must count 20% of the total public school students within their “athletic district.”
The definition of a non-boundaried school is: Any private school, charter school, lab school, magnet school, residential school, and any public school in a multi-high school district that does not accept students from a fixed portion of the district.

Rationale
This proposal uses the concept of cooperative teams to allow currently non-boundaried schools to create their own boundaries. These schools would declare their “athletic district” to the IHSA. They would then be held accountable for a percentage of the students from which they draw under these guidelines just as cooperative schools do. However, it is not the contention of this proposal that these schools are actually a feasible option for 100% of the public school students. Coop schools are required to count 100% of the students in a district regardless of whether they have one, five, fifty or even no competitors on the team in a given year. Twenty percent of the students in a public school district within the “athletic district” should be counted to determine the athletic enrollment. Additionally the non-boundaried schools must be able to draw students, in general, from as wide a region as possible to ensure their economic survival and continue their service to their communities. Students who would like to be eligible to participate in athletics would need to reside in the school’s “athletic district” just as similar students would at a boundaried school. This proposal creates absolutely no hindrance for attendance to students who do not participate in athletics. Each of these students would count as one student just as similar students would at a boundaried school.

Proposal No. 19

2005-06
Add By-law 3.180 – Football Scheduling

Submitted by Rich Wherley, Principal, Eureka



Add By-law 3.180 to read:
All schools with a football team will have their games scheduled for them by the IHSA in a 18 team regional/sectional format. This scheduling will be done on a two year home-away cycle. Each team will get four home games and four away games each year. Game nine will be a playoff game versus another team in a different regional if possible. All regionals will be developed based on school enrollments (using the multiplier if it gets voted in) and geography.

Rationale
You will know what class you're in before the season starts making scouting playoff opponents easier. In the age of $3 gas, mileage/travel should be reduced. All football players throughout the state will have an incentive to improve the entire season. (It becomes increasingly difficult to motivate football players once they know that they are out of the playoffs.) If a key player gets hurt early in the season there is still a chance to recover and a reason to come back o finish playing out the season. No more changing conferences and disrupting all other conference member's schedules when someone goes looking for a better situation. IHSA makes a lot more money. Good teams get a guaranteed fifth home game each year with a larger attendance than a normal ninth game.

Submitted by Gary Koeller, Principal, Moline on behalf of the Western Big Six Conference


Delete By-laws 5.010 and 5.011 which currently read:
5.010 BOYS FALL BASEBALL
5.011 Season Limitation
a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Boys Fall Baseball teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 7 or later than Saturday of Week 16 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Boys Fall Baseball no earlier than Monday of Week 8 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

5.211 Season Limitation
a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Girls Spring Golf teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 35 or later than Saturday of Week 47 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Spring Golf no earlier than Monday of Week 37 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

5.231 Season Limitation
a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Girls Fall Softball teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 7 or later than Saturday of Week 16 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Fall Softball no earlier than Monday of Week 9 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.


Rationale
1. The current by-laws sanction two competitive sports seasons within one school term.
2. The by-laws are contrary to the policies and practices of the IHSA which defines specific sports seasons and defines limits to the high school coaches’ involvement in the off-season competition.
3. The dual seasons encourage sports specialization and harm the healthy practice of multiple sport participation by forcing choices on the athlete.

Submitted by Chris Troller, Principal, Poplar Grove (North Boone)


By-law 5.062 currently reads:

5.062 Pre-Season Practice Requirements:

A student shall become eligible to participate in an interscholastic contest or scrimmage in Boys Football after completing a minimum of 1 1/2 hours of actual field practice on twelve (12) different days excluding Sunday and any day on which the student actually plays in an interscholastic football contest. These practices must be conducted in accordance with Association By-laws.



Revise By-law 5.062 to read:
A student shall become eligible to participate in an interscholastic contest or scrimmage in Boys Football after completing a minimum of 1 1/2 hours of actual field practice on twelve (12) different days excluding Sunday and any day on which the student actually plays in an interscholastic football contest. These practices must be conducted in accordance with Association By-laws. Exception: Any athlete who is late starting school due to basic training for a branch of the armed forces will only have to complete a minimum of 1 ½ hours of actual field practice on four (4) different days excluding Sunday and any day on which the student actually plays in an interscholastic football contest. These practices must be conducted in accordance with Association By-laws.

Rationale
The physical conditioning provided by the military is more than adequate for the purposes of playing football. By only requiring four days, the athlete would only have to miss one game from the time he actually attends school. A young man who makes this career choice should be applauded, not punished and forced to sit on the sidelines.

a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Girls Soccer teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 35 or later than Saturday of Week 48 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Soccer no earlier than Monday of Week 37 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.


Rationale of Submitter
Due to the implementation of the new classification, the addition of a super-sectional level in the state playoff series and for the sake of providing a fair and competitive opportunity during the season and in the post-season playoffs, it is necessary to start the post-season playoffs a week earlier. Thus, there is a need to start the season one week earlier.

b. No member of a Girls Fall Tennis team representing a member school shall, in any one season, participate on more than twenty (20) dates, exclusive of the IHSA series.
Rationale of Submitter


  1. This will give teams more flexibility with their schedules. Schedules have become more difficult in tennis for the following reasons: (a) schools are being added to conferences, changing the number of required meets for that conference; and, (b) there are more two day invitational tournaments being organized.

  2. This will allow more teams to set up multiple date tournaments.

  3. This will allow schools to schedule matches with teams in their sectional that they would not be able to play.

  4. This will allow schools in border areas to play dates with other schools in Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri and Kentucky.

  5. There are no real negatives to this by-law since teams that do not want to play more dates are not required to play twenty dates.

Amend By-law 5.321 – Girls Soccer

5.321 Season Limitation (Girls Soccer)

a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Girls Soccer teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 36 or later than Saturday of Week 48 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Soccer no earlier than Monday of Week 38 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

5.321 Season Limitation (Girls Soccer)

a. No school belonging to this Association shall organize its Girls Soccer teams, practice or participate in interscholastic contests earlier than Monday of Week 36 or later than Saturday of Week 48 49 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Soccer no earlier than Monday of Week 38 in the IHSA Standardized Calendar.
Rationale
Due to the IHSA state series starting one week earlier, there is need to expand the regular season by one week. If we move the start date of Girls Soccer up one week on the IHSA Standardized Calendar, then Girls Soccer will have their first week of practice/tryouts at the same time as Boys Baseball, Boys Tennis, Girls Badminton and Girls Softball. Due to the traditional weather (rain, snow, etc.) during IHSA Week 35, all of these “outdoor sports” are looking for indoor practice facilities to conduct their practices/tryouts. Adding another “outdoor sport” to the list of sports look for indoor practice time during Week 35 will make our crowded indoor facilities even more crowded. If we leave the start date at IHSA Week 35 and move the state tournament back a week (to Week 49), then there is a greater likelihood that our facilities will be able to provide quality indoor practice opportunities for all sports during their first practice/tryouts.

b. A member school may conduct its first interscholastic contest in Girls Water Polo no earlier than Week 36 of the IHSA Standardized Calendar.
Rationale
1. The reason for this change is because with a 30 game maximum limit, many coaches have requested the extra week to allow more flexibility in scheduling of games for the season.
2. Currently, with an 11 week season, the first week does not allow for any games as this is the time for registration, physicals and practice for all teams. The last two weeks of the season are for Sectional and State Championship tournaments. This leaves a total of 8 weeks for scheduling of games with schools.
3. Since it is a Spring Sport, there is also the Spring Break time frame potentially taking another week of competition away from the sport.
4. With a 7-8 week timeframe, teams wanting to play a full schedule of 30 games for the year have to schedule 2-4 games a week leaving minimal time for practice.
5. The additional week will allow teams more flexibility in scheduling games and more practice time for both teaching and training.

Amend By-laws 6.033 and 6.034 and add 6.035 – Protest Procedure

Submitted by Joe Fowler, Principal, Blue Island (Eisenhower)


By-law 6.033 currently reads:
6.033 The decisions of game officials shall be final; protests against the decision of a game official shall not be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
By-law 6.034 currently reads:
6.034 Principals should file with the Executive Director, on forms provided by the IHSA Office, reports of unsatisfactory performance on the part of game officials, which may be due to alleged lack of knowledge of the rules, errors in judgment, or improper conduct.
Revise By-law 6.033 to read:
6.033 The decisions of game officials during non-IHSA state series contests shall be final; protests against the decision of a game official shall not be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
Revise By-law 6.034 to read:
6.034 The decisions of game officials during IHSA state series contests may be protested under the following conditions:
A. All officials working the contest submit an individual IHSA Special Report Form to the IHSA Office within 24 hours of the conclusion of the contest.
B. The school protesting the official’s decision submits an IHSA Member School Special Report Form to the IHSA office within 24 hours of the conclusion of the contest.
C. The Executive Director of the IHSA or his/her designee makes a protest ruling based on all of the reports submitted before the start of the next contest of the protesting school. The decision from the IHSA shall be final.
Principals should file with the Executive Director, on forms provided by the IHSA Office, reports of unsatisfactory performance on the part of game officials, which may be due to alleged lack of knowledge of the rules, errors in judgment, or improper conduct.
Add By-law 6.035 to read:
Principals should file with the Executive Director, on forms provided by the IHSA Office, reports of unsatisfactory performance on the part of game officials, which may be due to alleged lack of knowledge of the rules, errors in judgment, or improper conduct.
Rationale
This would add a protest procedure for a state series contest where there are at least two officials present and a review of an obvious correctable situation. The importance of an IHSA state series contest should not allow an official to make a judgment call without due process allowed to the school protesting. With reports from all of the officials and the school, a more impartial and rational decision can be made by the IHSA.
