SCH CD-BOUNDARY CHANGES-TECH
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the School Code. Makes a technical change in a Section
concerning boundary changes.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Deletes reference to:
105 ILCS 5/7-01
Adds reference to:
105 ILCS 5/7-2a from Ch. 122, par. 7-2a
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the School
Code. Provides that if a petition is initiated by two-thirds of the
registered voters in a school district seeking to annex the district
in its entirety to another school district or districts and the board
of education of the annexing district or districts has not adopted a
resolution agreeing to the annexation, then the annexation, if
approved by the regional board of school trustees, is not effective
until it is approved by the voters in each affected school district at
an election held for the purpose of voting on the question. Requires
a regional board of school trustees to conduct a hearing to determine
the validity of a petition for dissolution (instead of requiring the
board to exercise its discretion on the issue of annexing the
territory of a district being dissolved).
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the
contents of the bill as engrossed, but (i) restores current law
allowing the school district to be dissolved and its territory annexed
upon the filing of a petition signed by registered voters of the
district (but changes the number of signatures required to two-thirds
instead of a majority of the voters) and (ii) restores current law
requiring a regional board of school trustees to exercise its
discretion on the issue of annexing the territory of the district
(instead of requiring the board to conduct a hearing to determine the
validity of a petition for dissolution).
