In the State Universities Article, provides that a person who, on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act, becomes an employee of any association of community college boards organized under a certain provision of the Public Community College Act, the Association of Illinois Middle-Grade Schools, the Illinois Association of School Administrators, the Illinois Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, the Illinois Principals Association, the Illinois Association of School Business Officials, or the Illinois Special Olympics shall not be deemed an employee under the Article. Provides that an individual that begins employment after the effective date of the amendatory Act with an entity not defined as an employer in the Article shall not be deemed an employee for the purposes of the Article. Provides that in the case of doubt as to whether any person is an employee, as defined in the Article, the decision of the Board of Trustees shall be final. In the Downstate Teacher Article, provides that an employee of a school board association who becomes an employee after the effective date of the amendatory Act is not a teacher for the purposes of the Article.
