At the NACAC National Conference held in St. Louis, Missouri, three members of IACAC were honored for their long-term commitment to our profession and serving students in their postsecondary transition. Marybeth Kravets (retired from Deerfield H.S.) received the Gayle C. Wilson Service to Education Award, Aliza Gilbert (Highland Park H.S.) received the Human Relations Award, and Marsha Hubbuch (retired from Riverside-Brookfield H.S.), for her initiation of Project Reach, received the Rising Star Award.
The 2010 version of the NACAC Annual Conference is now a part of history, and after hearing from individuals who attended, this conference was a resounding success.
The Assembly adopted proposed changes to the Statement of Principles of Good Practice: Education, Monitoring Policies, and Procedures submitted by the National Admissions Practices Committee. The changes outline steps to refer cases from the affiliate AP Committees to NACAC, clearly state the range of possible penalties for noncompliance, and update routine language such as “state and regional” to “affiliate” and “accused” to “noncompliant party.
