Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Educator Licensure Article of the School Code. Makes changes to provisions concerning the licensure powers of the State Board of Education, the State Educator Preparation and Licensure Board (including adding 2 members), types of licenses (including removing and adding certain endorsements on an educator license with stipulations), endorsements on professional educator licenses, educator testing, the minimum requirements for educators trained in other states or countries, application fees, license renewal, the Alternative Educator Licensure Program for Teachers, alternative route to superintendent endorsement programs, and the approval of educator preparation institutions. Effective July 1, 2018.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
40 ILCS 5/16-118from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 16-118
105 ILCS 5/10-20.67 new
105 ILCS 5/34-18.60 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Amends the Downstate Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. For the period beginning July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2020, increases the amount of employment as a teacher that a retired teacher may perform without impairing the retirement status; allows 120 paid days or 600 paid hours in a school year, but not more than 100 paid days in the same classroom. Further amends the School Code. Provides that, beginning July 1, 2018 and until June 30, 2023, the State Board of Education may issue a Short-Term Substitute Teaching License; specifies requirements and fees for the License. Provides that each school board shall, in collaboration with its teachers or, if applicable, the exclusive bargaining representative of its teachers, jointly develop a short-term substitute teacher training program that provides individuals who hold a Short-Term Substitute Teaching License with information on curriculum, classroom management techniques, school safety, and district and building operations. Provides that a school board with a substitute teacher training program in place before the effective date of the amendatory Act may utilize that program to satisfy the short-term substitute teacher training program requirement. Repeals the provision on July 1, 2023. Provides that a school district may not require an individual who holds a valid Professional Educator License or Educator License with Stipulations to seek or hold a Substitute Teaching License. Provides that, in order to receive a Professional Educator License endorsed in a school support personnel area, applicants trained in another country must meet certain requirements. Provides that, as used in the Educator Licensure Article of the School Code, in connection with the word "school" or "institution", the term "recognized" includes a for-profit entity that meets the requirements set by the State Board of Education, and requires any for-profit entity to be approved by the Board of Higher Education. Makes other changes. Effective July 1, 2018.
