Changes are passed by simple majority of member schools. The day-to-day running of the Association is charged to an administrative staff of nine,  one of whom acts in the position of Executive Director.
This group is directly responsible for setting up and running the individual state playoff series in each sport and activity. They also supervise annual meetings with advisory committees from each sport and activity to review possible changes in the rules.
They also coordinate committees on issues from sportsmanship and sports medicine to media relations and corporate sponsorship. Subordinate to the Constitution and By-Laws are a number of policies.
Examples of policies include individual athlete eligibility, rules governing the addition of new sports and activities, the classification of schools 1A, 2A, 3A, etc. The key policy that has been a cornerstone to the IHSA is its policy on grouping and seeding tournaments: The State Series is designed to determine a State Champion.
The State Series is not intended to necessarily advance the best teams in the state to the State Final.

The IHSA is built upon the concept of geographic representation in its state playoff series. Only the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association outdates it, by two years.
For the greater part of a decade, the IHSA was concerned mostly with establishing school control over interscholastic athletic programs and setting eligibility standards for competition. Ringers were a persistent problem, and among schoolboy sports, football was a special concern.
In this period, severe injuries and even deaths were not uncommon, and there was much talk of banning football completely.
Although a handful of other state associations had sponsored track meets, none had ever attempted to organize a statewide basketball tournament. Subsequent state tournaments, which were open to all member schools, provided the IHSA with fiscal independence, an important new vehicle to spread its message, and ever-increasing name recognition among the public. Bythe affairs of the Association became so time-consuming that its board hired a full-time manager, C.
As vice president of the Board, Whitten had recently reorganized the basketball tournament and reduced the size of the state finals from 21 teams to four.
In addition to his IHSA responsibilities, Whitten ran the business affairs of the NFHS, at first unofficially, and after with the official title of general manager. Porterexerted unusual influence over high school sports, not only in Illinois, but across the nation.

In one memorable battle, Whitten took on the "grand old man" of college football, Amos Alonzo Stagg of the University of Chicago and effectively shut down his national tournament for high school basketball champions.
Porter later became the first full-time executive of the NFHS. As the Association matured, member schools requested sponsorship of state tournaments in sports other than basketball. The first such move came inwhen the IHSA took over control of the Illinois Interscholastic, a festival of high school track, golf, and tennis run by the University of Illinois.
The meet continued to be held on the campus in Champaign-Urbanabut as with basketball, IHSA involvement opened the field to all IHSA member schools and removed non-member schools, including a handful of out-of-state schools. The IHSA subsequently established state series in several other boys' sports: Few of these series were self-supporting, but the ever-popular basketball tournament — sometimes referred to as the "goose that laid the golden egg" — paid the freight for all.
The new constitution approved in extended the privileges of membership to non-public schools and gave limited autonomy to the Chicago schools, which subsequently joined en masse.
In addition, non-athletic activities such as speech and music were added to the IHSA's menu, prompting the elimination of the word "Athletic" from the Association's name. When a bill was introduced in the Illinois General Assembly to transfer the IHSA's authority to the state superintendent's office, the IHSA moved to change the ban, and give local athletic directors a greater voice in decision making.
The association polled its membership to investigate the possibility of ending the spring sports season. The poll supported keeping the season. Girls have had the opportunity to participate in IHSA sponsored interscholastic sports sincethough opportunities before that were somewhat restricted.
Girls' basketball had already begun to pervade high schools by the time the IHSA was founded in Just a few years later, upwards of Illinois high schools sponsored girls' basketball teams.
For a variety of reasons, the early leaders of the IHSA found this situation unacceptable.
