Our second academic year enabled the Academy to embark in new directions. At the conclusion of the 1988 spring legislative session, the Academy's budget review process was transferred from the Illinois State Board of Education to the Illinois Board of Higher Education. We are grateful to all who have helped shape the Academy into the unique institution that it is today. We extend special thanks to Superintendent of Education Dr. Ted Sanders and the staff at the State Board of Education for their leadership. With their assistance and support, the Academy was able to achieve significant growth within a limited time frame.
