I never understand why the Quincy building inspector never mentions that building that houses Bayview Building supply. It is in worse shape than some of the fix or flatten property's and there are people going in and out every day buying building supplies. It is on 630 n 2nd, go down by the bay and look to the east.

These are "elected officials" not employees. They are not entitled to heath insurance in my thinking based on the hours they work. I do realize they put in more time than the council meeting. But they are still a long way from being full time. Why are city taxpayers being burdened with the cost of their heath care when the county and the school board do not feed at the trough? The total cost for the…

And why should this stop? It's all part of their compensation. They spend a lot more time than what you see on TV. For example, if you eliminate the health care you reduce the likelihood of a small business owner wanting to run. Plus it also means most of the council members have the same health insurance as other city employees...which seems like a jolly good idea There are two reasons…

IHSA delays "Success Factor" implementation

Rule gets some tweaks

he Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Board of Directors met at its regularly scheduled meeting at the IHSA office in Bloomington on Monday, June 16, 2014, where the Board made the decision to delay the implementation of recently adopted changes to IHSA Policy 17, including the new multiplier waiver and “success factor”, until the 2015-16 school year.

The Board initially enacted changes to Policy 17, based on the recommendation of a committee, at its meeting in February (click for recap). 

“The Board believes that the changes approved to Policy 17 in February will help maintain competitive balance in the state,” said Wauconda High School Principal and IHSA Board President Dan Klett. “However, conversations with school personnel in our respective districts led the Board to believe that more education and feedback was needed before implementing these changes.”

In addition, on Monday, the Board approved a minor change to the “success factor.” The original policy language called for a school to be subject to the “success factor” if they won two state final trophies over a four-year period. Monday’s change will now require that one of the two trophies be won in the two most recent school years in order for a school to be subject to the “success factor.”

The Board has charged the IHSA staff with developing a presentation on the changes and how they affect membership, which they will present as a part of the annual Town Hall Meetings held in November.

“The changes to Policy 17 are significant, so it is important that the membership has a strong grasp on their history and implementation,” said IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman. “The ‘success factor’ will affect about three percent of the membership, but the waiver changes will have a considerably larger impact. It will be a positive step to gain feedback from the membership, as well as to make sure we have a full understanding on how these changes influence other factors, such as classification cutoffs.”

In Monday’s meeting, the Board approved the classification cutoffs for the 2014-15 school year. Enrollments and classifications will be released later this week on the IHSA website.
