    AN ACT concerning education.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The School Code is amended by adding Section
24A-5.5 as follows:
    (105 ILCS 5/24A-5.5 new)
    Sec. 24A-5.5. Local appeal process for unsatisfactory
ratings. Beginning with the first school year following the
effective date of this amendatory Act of the 101st General
Assembly, each school district shall, in good faith cooperation
with its teachers or, if applicable, through good faith
bargaining with the exclusive bargaining representative of its
teachers, develop and implement an appeals process for
"unsatisfactory" ratings under Section 24A-5 that includes,
but is not limited to, an assessment of the original rating by
a panel of qualified evaluators agreed to by the joint
committee referred to in subsection (b) of Section 24A-4 that
has the power to revoke the "unsatisfactory" rating it deems to
be erroneous. The joint committee shall determine the criteria
for successful appeals; however, the issuance of a rating to
replace an "unsatisfactory" rating must be determined through
bargaining between the exclusive bargaining representative, if
any, and the school district.
    Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect upon
becoming law.

Effective Date: 8/27/2019
