Constitution, By-laws & Policies

The IHSA Constitution and By-laws are the framework of rules that govern interscholastic competition among IHSA member schools. Every provision of the Constitution and every By-law was voted into effect by the membership and can be changed only by a vote of the membership. The Board of Directors approves interpretations for situations that need elaboration or are not specifically mentioned in the Constitution and By-laws.

IHSA Policies and Procedures are enacted by the Board of Directors to provide guidance for the day-to-day administration of IHSA sport and activity programs and the operation of the Association.

The IHSA Handbook is a compilation of all these items, published every summer for the coming school term.
