Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides for the waiver of tuition assessed by a school district on children whose parents are unable to afford them. With respect to summer school, provides that a school board must (instead of may) waive all or part of summer school charges if it determines that the family of a pupil is indigent or the educational needs of the pupil require his or her attendance. Amends the Chicago School District Article to provide that the summer kindergarten provisions are subject to the waiver of fees and tuition provisions. Requires the Chicago Board of Education, during that period of the calendar year not embraced within the regular school term, to provide and conduct courses in subject matters normally embraced in the program of the schools during the regular school term, fix and collect a charge for attendance at such courses in an amount not to exceed the per capita cost of the operation thereof, except that the board must waive all or part of such charges if it determines that the family of an individual pupil is indigent or that the educational needs of the pupil require his or her attendance at such courses, and give regular school credit for satisfactory completion by the student of such courses as may be approved for credit by the State Board of Education.
