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.

    "Grant index" means a figure for each school district equal to one minus the ratio of the district's equalized assessed valuation per pupil in average daily attendance to the equalized assessed valuation per pupil in average daily attendance of the district located at the 90th percentile for all districts of the same category. For the purpose of calculating the grant index, school districts are grouped into 2 categories, Category I and Category II. Category I consists of elementary and unit school districts. The equalized assessed valuation per pupil in average daily attendance of each school district in Category I shall be computed using its grades kindergarten through 8 average daily attendance figure. A unit school district's Category I grant index shall be used for projects or portions of projects constructed for elementary school pupils. Category II consists of high school and unit school districts. The equalized assessed valuation per pupil in average daily attendance of each school district in Category II shall be computed using its grades 9 through 12 average daily attendance figure. A unit school district's Category II grant index shall be used for projects or portions of projects constructed for high school pupils. The changes made by this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly apply to all grants made on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act, provided that for grants not yet made on the effective date of this amendatory Act but made in fiscal year 2001 and for grants made in fiscal year 2002, the grant index for a school district shall be the greater of (i) the grant index as calculated under this Law on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act or (ii) the grant index as calculated under this Law before the effective date of this amendatory Act. The grant index shall be no less than 0.35 and no greater than 0.75 for each district; provided that the grant index for districts whose equalized assessed valuation per pupil in average daily attendance is at the 99th percentile and above for all districts of the same type shall be 0.00.
    The grant index shall be calculated for each of those school districts forming a reorganized school district or cooperative high school if one or more of the following happen within the current or prior 2 fiscal years:
        (1) a new school district is created in accordance
    
with Article 11E of the School Code;
        (2) an existing school district annexes all of the
    
territory of one or more entire other school districts in accordance with Article 7 of the School Code; or
        (3) a cooperative high school is formed in accordance
    
with Section 10-22.22c of the School Code.
The average grant index of those school districts shall be used as the grant index for the newly reorganized district or cooperative high school.
    "School construction project" means the acquisition, development, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, improvement, architectural planning, and installation of capital facilities consisting of buildings, structures, durable equipment, and land for educational purposes.
    "School district" means a school district or a Type 40 area vocational center that is jointly owned if the joint agreement includes language that specifies how the debt obligation is to be paid, including in the event that an entity withdraws from the joint agreement.
    "School district" includes a cooperative high school, which shall be considered a high school district for the purpose of calculating its grant index.
    "School maintenance project" means a project, other than a school construction project, intended to provide for the maintenance or upkeep of buildings or structures for educational purposes, but does not include ongoing operational costs.

    Sec. 5-400. Charter school construction grants.
    (a) The Capital Development Board is authorized to make grants to charter schools, as authorized by Article 27A of the School Code, 105 ILCS 5/Art. 27A, for construction projects. The grants shall be paid out of moneys appropriated for that purpose from the Build Illinois Bond Fund. A charter school and other eligible entities have no entitlement to a grant under this Section.
    (b) The Capital Development Board shall adopt rules to implement this Section. These rules need not be the same as the rules for school construction project grants or school maintenance project grants. The rules may specify:
        (1) the manner of applying for grants;
        (2) project eligibility requirements;
        (3) restrictions on the use of grant moneys;
        (4) the manner in which school districts must account
    
for the use of grant moneys; and
        (5) any other provision that the Capital Development
    
Board determines to be necessary or useful for the administration of this Section.
    With respect to those school construction projects for which a charter school applies for a grant on or after July 1, 2009, the school construction project must receive silver certification from the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System.
