Synopsis As Introduced

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
105 ILCS 5/27-23.11 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the School Code. Provides that a school board shall not adopt a policy limiting the number of dual credit courses a student may enroll in or the number of academic credits a student may receive from dual credit courses provided that the course is taught by an instructor under the Dual Credit Quality Act or by a licensed teacher or community college professor or instructor in the State of Illinois. Provides that a school board must award high school course credit to a student for dual credit coursework, unless evidence about the course's rigor and content shows that it does not address the relevant Illinois Learning Standard at the level appropriate for the high school grade during which the course is usually taken, and that credit shall satisfy certain requirements under Code for that course. Provides that a superintendent may limit the number of academic credits a student may earn from dual credit courses if certain requirements under the Code are not being met.
