Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Charter Schools Law of the School Code. Allows an additional 5 charter schools devoted exclusively to students from low-performing or overcrowded schools to operate at any one time in Chicago. Defines "low-performing school" and "overcrowded school". Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that of the 70 charter schools that are permitted to operate at any one time in a city having a population exceeding 500,000, not more than 5 charter schools devoted exclusively to students from low-performing or overcrowded schools are allowed (instead of allowing an additional 5 charter schools devoted exclusively to students from low-performing or overcrowded schools to operate in a city having a population exceeding 500,000).

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that of the 70 charter schools that are permitted to operate at any one time in a city having a population exceeding 500,000, at least (instead of not more than) 5 charter schools devoted exclusively to students from low-performing or overcrowded schools are allowed. Provides that those charter schools operating in the city that are permitted to be devoted exclusively to re-enrolled high school dropouts may also be devoted exclusively to students at risk of dropping out. Provides that any charter school with a mission exclusive to educating high school dropouts may grant priority (instead of restrict) admission to students who are high school dropouts or at risk of dropping out (instead of only high school dropouts).

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends that those charter schools operating in a city having a population exceeding 500,000 that are permitted to be devoted exclusively to re-enrolled high school dropouts may also be devoted inclusively or exclusively to students 16 or 15 years old at risk of dropping out (rather than exclusively to students at risk of dropping out). Recommends definitions for priority admission and students at risk of dropping out.
