The room was packed with coaches, principals and supporters of the IHSA. Committee members listened to testimony from IHSA officials. A report was released from the IRS stating one in four employees with the association makes more than $100,000 a year. Lawmakers wanted to know exactly where the association's money is coming from.
One supporter is a coach from Champaign's Central High School. IHSA's executive director testified the organization has great transparent relationships with Illinois' schools and posts all financial audits online.
The association is made up of and governed by a ten-member board of high school principals. It says employees make about the same as people in similar organizations around the country.
