Other notes and complete Board meeting minutes

During their June 11, 2004, the IESA Board of Directors approved a recommendation from the By-Laws committee that eliminates the requirement that schools must submit a schedule to the IESA Office prior to their first contest in the sports of girls basketball, boys basketball, girls volleyball, and boys wrestling. Schools are still encouraged to prepare a season schedule for distribution and must adhere to the game limitations, but it is no longer required that the schedule be submitted to the IESA Office. Other highlights from the meeting included:

Accepted the resignation of Dr. Charles Irwin, Division D representative. Dr. Irwin is retiring from Streator Northlawn Jr. High School. Board President Joe Spiezio will appoint a representative from Division D to fill the remaining one year left on Dr. Irwin's term.
