Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

The State Board shall
enter into agreements with public or private welfare, educational, or
other agencies, other than the public common schools, competent to provide the
education or training defined in said Section, for the establishment of such
special classes by such agencies.
The Board shall establish the
standards for such courses of instruction and supervise the
administration thereof. The Board shall determine
the cost of such instruction, including therein such incidental costs of
student transportation, facilities, or provision for child care for
students who are parents, and other special needs of the students, as
authorized by Section 10-22.20 of the School Code.
The provisions of Section 10-22.20 of the School Code respecting the
reimbursement of the total cost of such instruction or training by the
Department of Employment Security for
students who may be authorized under the Illinois Public Aid Code,
approved April 11, 1967, shall be applicable to classes established
under this Act. Each agency entering into an agreement shall keep
accurate and detailed accounts of students assigned to it and receiving
instruction in such special classes and submit claims for reimbursement
in the manner provided for school districts or community college districts
under said Section 10-22.20, and claims for reimbursement shall be
processed as therein provided.
Any such agreement may be terminated by the Board
when it determines (1) that such classes are no longer
necessary, or (2) that the instruction or training established by an
agency fails to meet the established standards, or (3) that the classes
established by a school district or community college district, within
whose geographical limits the agency is located, pursuant to Section
10-22.20 of the School Code, are adequate for the purpose.

Each Area Planning Council must elect officers and develop bylaws that indicate the membership of the Council.

Plan submitted by the Area Planning Council meets the requirements of this
Act of 1982 and the established standards and guidelines, the Board shall approve the Plan. The approval of adult education
by the Board for reimbursement under Section
of the School Code shall be based on the Adult Education Plan approved for the
Area. The Area Adult Education Plan must be approved prior to funding being made available to an Area Planning Council district.
