Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. With respect to a school district petitioning to withdraw from its special education joint agreement program, provides that if the petition for withdrawal is not approved by all of the remaining member districts and the petitioning member district is a part of a Class II county school unit outside of a city of 500,000 or more inhabitants (suburban Cook County), the petitioning member district may appeal the disapproval decision to its respective intermediate service center. Provides that if the chief administrative officer of the intermediate service center approves the petition for withdrawal, then the petitioning member district shall be withdrawn from the joint agreement effective the following July 1 and shall notify the State Board of Education of the approved withdrawal in writing. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides for appeal of the disapproval decision to the trustees of schools of the township that has jurisdiction and authority over the withdrawing district or, if a withdrawing district is not under the jurisdiction and authority of the trustees of schools of a township, to a hearing panel established by the chief administrative officer of the intermediate service center having jurisdiction over the withdrawing district (instead of appealing to the respective intermediate service center). Sets forth provisions concerning the hearing panel members.
