(110 ILCS 27/17)
Out-of-state dual credit contracts.
On or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly, a school district may not enter into a new contract with an out-of-state institution to provide a dual credit course without first offering the community college district in the district in which the school district is located the opportunity to provide the course. Prior to entering into a contract with an out-of-state institution, the school district shall notify the Board of Higher Education of its intent to enter into an agreement with an out-of-state institution. The Board of Higher Education shall have 30 days to provide the school district with a list of in-state institutions that can provide the school district an equivalent dual credit opportunity. In deciding which dual credit courses to offer, a school district reserves the right to evaluate any dual credit course offered by any institution for quality, rigor, and alignment with the school district's students' needs.
Agreements to provide dual credit courses between a school district and an out-of-state institution in existence on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly shall remain in effect and shall not be impacted by this Section.
