Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code and the Department of State Police Law of the Civil Administrative Code. Provides that in addition to fingerprint-based criminal history records checks, the Department of State Police, at the request of a school board or regional superintendent, shall conduct sex offender registration data checks and orders of protection records checks on applicants for employment with a school district, and requires applicants to have these checks performed. Amends the Sex Offender and Child Murderer Community Notification Law to provide for the sex offender registration data check, which shall include the release of the name, address, date of birth, and offense or adjudication of a sex offender required to register under the Sex Offender Registration Act to the president of a school board or a regional superintendent. Effective immediately.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Illinois State Board of Education)
 The Illinois State Police will be required to conduct, in addition to a fingerprint-based background check, a check of the Sex Offender Registry (SOR) under the Sex Offender and Child Murderer Community Notification Law, and a check of all valid and recorded orders of protection issued under the Domestic Violence Act of 1986. The School Safety and Educational Improvement Block Grant (also known as the ADA Block Grant) may be used by school districts to fund the cost of the background checks, the SOR checks and the check for orders of protection. There will not be an additional fee to check the SOR and it will not be performed by the ISP. Access to the ISP SOR website is free (other than Internet subscriber fees and personnel time). School districts, and regional superintendents in the case of substitutes, concurrent part-time teachers or concurrent educational support personnel, will be required to initiate a fingerprint-based background check, an SOR check and a check for orders or protection on an applicant for hire. The SOR and order of protection checks will be performed at the school district or the ROE.
