Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Creates the police training academy job training program. Requires any school district with a high school to establish a partnership with a local police department, county sheriff, or police training academy to establish a jobs training program for high school students. Provides that the program shall be open to all students regardless of academic history, but that school districts may impose requirements to maintain successful participation in the program. Requires the State Board of Education to track students participating in the programs. Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Creates the police training academy job training scholarship program. Provides that the Illinois Student Assistance Commission shall receive applications for scholarships from any applicant that has successfully completed the police training academy job training program and been accepted to any public institution of higher learning in the State. Provides that applicants who are determined to be eligible for the scholarship shall receive, subject to appropriation, a renewable scholarship to be applied to tuition and mandatory fees and paid directly to the public institution of higher learning at which the applicant is enrolled. Allows the Commission to establish by rule academic requirements to maintain access to the scholarship. Grants students who have received a scholarship access to any needed noncredit remedial courses in order to ensure academic success, as well as access to a student retention program offered by the public institution, including, but not limited to, CHANCE programs.
