Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. In provisions allowing a board of education to enter into a contract with a third party for non-instructional services currently performed by any employee or bargaining unit member, removes a provision that requires any third party that submits a bid to perform the non-instructional services to provide a benefits package for the third party's employees who will perform the non-instructional services comparable to the benefits package provided to school board employees who perform those services. With respect to excusing pupils from engaging in physical education courses, provides for additional reasons why a pupil may be excused, pursuant to school board policy. Requires a public hearing on whether to adopt such a policy to be held at a regular or special school board meeting prior to adopting the policy. Provides that a school district may offer a driver education course in a school by contracting with a commercial driver training school to provide both the classroom instruction part and the practice driving part or either one without having to request a modification or waiver of administrative rules of the State Board of Education if a public hearing on whether to enter into a contract with a commercial driver training school has been held at a regular or special school board meeting prior to entering into such a contract; sets forth requirements concerning the contract.
