Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides that early childhood programs receiving State Board of Education grants for preschool educational programs shall prohibit the expulsion of children. Provides instead that when persistent and serious challenging behaviors emerge, the early childhood program shall document steps taken to ensure that the child can participate safely in the program and utilize a range of community resources. Sets forth provisions concerning the creation of a transition plan if there is documented evidence that all available interventions and supports recommended by a qualified professional have been exhausted; temporary removal of a child; the utilization of training, technical support, and professional development resources; and annually reporting to the State Board. Makes related changes. Amends the Child Care Act of 1969 to require the Department of Children and Family Services, in consultation with the Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development and the State Board of Education, to adopt rules prohibiting the use of expulsion due to a child's persistent and serious challenging behaviors in licensed day care centers, day care homes, and group day care homes.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
In the provisions concerning grants for preschool educational programs, (i) changes how often the State Board of Education must report to the General Assembly on the results and progress of students from every 3 years to every 2 years, and (ii) with respect to the expulsion prohibition, makes changes concerning training and reporting data.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that, beginning on July 1, 2018, early childhood programs shall annually report to the State Board of Education, and, beginning in fiscal year 2020, the State Board shall make available on a biennial basis, in an existing report, certain data for children from birth to age 5 who are served by the program (rather than providing that on or before July 1, beginning in 2018, early childhood programs shall annually report to the State Board and, on a biennial basis, the State Board shall make publicly available, in an existing annual report, certain data for children from birth to age 5 who are served by the program).
