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.

    (c) The Board of Higher Education is authorized to collect and maintain data from any public institution of higher learning, other than community colleges, and disclose this data to the longitudinal data system for the purposes set forth in this Act. The Board of Higher Education may also disclose data to the longitudinal data system that the Board of Higher Education is otherwise authorized by law to collect and maintain.
    Beginning on July 1, 2012, the Board of Higher Education is authorized to collect and maintain data from any non-public institution of higher learning enrolling one or more students receiving Monetary Award Program grants and any non-public institution of higher learning that confers graduate and professional degrees, pursuant to Section 35 of the Higher Education Student Assistance Act, and disclose this data to the longitudinal data system for the purposes set forth in this Act. Prior to July 1, 2012, any non-public institution of higher learning may elect to participate in the longitudinal data system by disclosing data for one or more of the purposes set forth in this Act to the Board of Higher Education or to a consortium that has contracted with the Board of Higher Education pursuant to this subsection (c).
    The Board of Higher Education may contract with one or more voluntary consortiums of non-public institutions of higher learning established for the purpose of data sharing, research, and analysis. The contract may allow the consortium to collect data from participating institutions on behalf of the Board of Higher Education. The contract may provide for consultation with a representative committee of participating institutions and a representative of one or more organizations representing the participating institutions prior to the use of data from the consortium for a data sharing arrangement entered into with any party other than a State Education Authority pursuant to Section 25 of this Act. The contract may further provide that individual institutions of higher learning shall have the right to opt out of specific uses of their data or portions thereof for reasons specified in the contract. Student-level data submitted by each institution of higher learning participating in a consortium that has contracted with the Board of Higher Education pursuant to this paragraph shall remain the property of that institution. Upon notice to the consortium and the Board of Higher Education, any non-public institution of higher learning shall have the right to remove its data from the consortium if the institution has reasonable cause to believe that there is a threat to the security of its data or its data is used in a manner that violates the terms of the contract between the consortium and the Board of Higher Education. In the event data is removed from a consortium pursuant to the preceding sentence, the data must be returned by the institution to the consortium after the basis for removal has been corrected. The data submitted from the consortium to the Board of Higher Education must be used only for agreed-upon purposes, as stated in the terms of the contract between the consortium and the Board of Higher Education. Non-public institutions of higher learning submitting student-level data to a consortium that has contracted with the Board of Higher Education pursuant to this paragraph shall not be required to submit student-level data to the Board of Higher Education.

The Board of Higher Education shall seek and may make available grant funding to a consortium including non-public institutions of higher learning to provide assistance in the development of a data collection system. The Board of Higher Education shall engage in a cooperative planning process with public and non-public institutions of higher learning and statewide higher education associations in connection with all of the activities authorized by this subsection (c).
    (d) The State Education Authorities shall establish procedures and requirements relating to the submission of data authorized to be collected pursuant to this Section, including requirements for data specifications, quality, security, and timeliness. All early learning programs, schools, school districts, and institutions of higher learning subject to the data collection authority of a State Education Authority pursuant to this Section shall comply with the State Education Authority's procedures and requirements for data submissions. A State Education Authority may require that staff responsible for collecting, validating, and submitting data participate in training and technical assistance offered by this State if data is not submitted in accordance with applicable procedures and requirements.
