Amends the School Code.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill with the following changes. Changes certain references relating to the State Board of Education and the State Superintendent of Education to the Illinois Community College Board and the Executive Director of the Illinois Community College Board. Makes changes concerning the evidence an eligible applicant must include in its application for approval. Provides that funding concerning a non-profit eligible applicant may include federal pass-through revenues, private funding, or other funding sources the non-profit entity secures (instead of providing that the funding is subject to appropriation, private funding, or other funding sources the non-profit entity secures). Authorizes rulemaking by the Illinois Community College Board. Effective immediately.

Includes community colleges in the definition of "eligible applicant" and sets forth additional requirements. Makes changes to the requirements of an approved program and the approval process. Removes language concerning funding of the programs. Provides that if an approved program fails to meet specified requirements, the Executive Director of the Illinois Community College Board shall immediately initiate a process to revoke approval. Provides that if approval is revoked, the eligible applicant shall be liable to adult learners who participated in the program for any damages they incur. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that a non-profit eligible applicant shall operate a high school diploma program only within the jurisdictional authority of the regional superintendent of schools, the chief administrator of an intermediate service center, or a school district in a city of over 500,000 inhabitants with whom the non-profit eligible applicant has entered into a partnership. Requires the Illinois Community College Board to make public any evaluation criteria used in making determinations under the provisions. Removes provisions concerning liability of the program.
