Short description: 
PEN CD-DNST TCHR-REEMPLOYMENT                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Downstate Teacher  Article  of  the  Illinois  Pension      
   Code.   Allows  certain  retired  teachers  to  accept employment as a      
   classroom teacher in a school or subject area that the State Board  of      
   Education  has  determined  to  be affected by a shortage of qualified      
   teachers.  Allows the teacher to  continue  to  receive  a  retirement      
   annuity  while  earning  additional  service  credit,  and  raises the      
   maximum annuity for these teachers to 85%  of  final  average  salary.      
   Amends the School Code to require the State Board of Education to make      
   and publish its determinations of teacher shortage regions and subject      
   areas.    Requires  the  Board to submit a report on the impact of the      
   program.  Effective immediately.                                            
          PENSION NOTE (Pension Laws Commission)                               
          The fiscal impact of HB 5959 cannot be calculated, as the            
          number of teachers who may return to service is unknown.
