Short description: 
JUVENILE DET CNTR ED PROGRAM                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code  and  the  Unified  Code  of  Corrections.      
   Allows  a  juvenile  detention  center  to provide a 365-day education      
   program  in  accordance  with  standards  set  by  the  Department  of      
   Corrections. For reimbursement purposes, provides that, for  a  school      
   district  that  provides  educational services to a juvenile detention      
   center  that  provides  a  365-day  education   program,   the   State      
   Superintendent  of  Education  shall  take into consideration that the      
   juvenile  detention  center  provides  a  365-day  education  program.      
   Provides that, for reimbursement purposes, the amount of  the  tuition      
   for  children  at  a juvenile detention center that provides a 365-day      
   education program shall be determined by  multiplying  the  number  of      
   children in average daily attendance by 1.4 (instead of 1.2) times the      
   total annual per capita cost of administering the program.                  
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          For regular education students to be educated every weekday,         
          costs would exceed the current "orphanage act" line item,            
          $14,410,100 in FY99. Estimated cost from the weighted increase       
          could be $16,859,700 for regular education orphanage ($2.5           
          million more).                                                       
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (State Board of Education)                       
          Same as SBE fiscal note.                                             
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          There will be no fiscal or corrections population impact.            
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.                                             
          FISCAL NOTE, REVISED (State Board of Education)                      
          Worst case scenario for additional costs would be $1,862,500         
          more for regular education orphanage services.                       
          STATE MANDATES NOTE, REVISED (State Board of Education)              
          Same as SBE fiscal note.
