IHSA delays playoffs success factor rule

The IHSA has decided to delay the implementation of the “success factor,” which it approved in February.

The success factor would move private and nonboundaried schools up in class if they achieved a certain amount of accolades over a four-year period. The policy was supposed to be in place this year but will be delayed until 2015-16.

For instance, Montini football, which has won four out of the past five Class 5A titles and knocked Sycamore out of the playoffs the past two seasons, would have been moved up a class.

“The board believes that the changes approved to Policy 17 in February will help maintain competitive balance in the state,” IHSA Board President and Wauconda High School principal Dan Klett said in a news release. “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.”
