   total annual per capita cost of administering the district's  schools.      
   Adds  provisions  authorizing  reimbursement  of  excess  costs  under      
   certain circumstances.  Effective immediately.

          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/14-7.03              from Ch. 122, par. 14-7.03

        Changes the title and adds  provisions  that  further  amend  the      
   School Code.  Repeals a provision that authorizes a school district to      
   claim  combined  reimbursement  for  children  with  disabilities from      
   orphanages, children's homes, foster family homes,  or  State  housing      
   units  who  must be placed in a nonpublic facility.  Provides that the      
   nonpublic facility in which such children are  placed  must  meet  the      
   programmatic  requirements applicable to such nonpublic facilities but      
   that the educational services are to be funded only in accordance with      
   the provisions relating to orphanages, children's homes, foster family      
   homes, and State housing units.                                             
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/14-3.01              from Ch. 122, par. 14-3.01

   duties and responsibilities.                                                
          FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED (State Board of Education)                      
          Increasing the orphanage reimbursement rate would generate an        
          additional $500,000 in excess costs. Eliminating the proration       
          loss which now occurs in the private tuition line item would         
          cost an additional $700,000. Increasing the size of the Council      
          would require approximately $15,000 additional in FY1999.            
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED (SBE)
