(105 ILCS 105/9a)
(from Ch. 122, par. 1409a)
Reimbursement for corrective action.
The Department shall, from funds
appropriated for this
purpose, reimburse schools which have undertaken corrective action. Such
schools, upon completion of an inspection by the
Department, shall be eligible for reimbursement only for those projects
found to have been conducted in accordance with the provisions of this Act
and the rules promulgated thereunder. Schools shall apply for such
reimbursement to the Department on forms designed and provided by the Department.
The amount of reimbursement for which a public school district is
eligible shall be calculated by the Department based upon a Grant Index
developed by the State Board of Education. This Grant Index shall be based
upon the equalized assessed valuation of the school district and other
measures of relative wealth to determine the percentage of the total cost
of corrective action for which reimbursement shall be authorized. The
Grant Index for any school district is equal to one minus the ratio of the
district's equalized assessed valuation per pupil in weighted daily average
attendance to the equalized assessed valuation per pupil in weighted
average daily attendance of the district located at the ninetieth
percentile for all districts of the same type. The Grant Index for any
school district shall be not less than .50 and no greater than 1.00. The
product of the district's Grant Index and the project cost, as determined by
the Department for approved corrective action, equals the total amount that
shall be reimbursed to the school according to the provisions of this
Section. All non-public schools shall be eligible for reimbursement in an
amount equal to 50% of the cost of corrective action.
Out of funds appropriated for such purpose, 20% of the amount of
reimbursement to which any school is determined entitled shall be paid in
each of 5 successive fiscal years. The Department shall request an annual
appropriation in an amount sufficient to cover all expected reimbursements
to be paid out in that fiscal year.
For purposes of reimbursement under this Section, corrective action means
removal, encapsulation or enclosure.
Schools reimbursed pursuant to this Section for corrective action
shall not be eligible for grants under
Section 9b with respect to the corrective action for which they are so
