(105 ILCS 5/32-7.2) (from Ch. 122, par. 32-7.2)
    Sec. 32-7.2. Teachers' orders. The school treasurer of any special charter district having a population of less than 500,000 shall pay out no funds of the district except on an order of the corporate authorities thereof, signed by the president and clerk, or by a majority of the board. When an order issued for the wages of any teacher or employee of such district is presented to the treasurer and is not paid for want of funds, the treasurer shall endorse it over his signature "not paid for want of funds", with the date of presentation, and shall make and keep a record of such endorsement. The order shall thereafter bear interest at the rate established by the school board of the district, payable annually, not exceeding the rate authorized from time to time under the Bond Authorization Act until the treasurer of such district notifies the clerk in writing that he has funds to pay it, and the treasurer shall keep a record of such notices and hold the funds necessary to pay such order until it is presented. The order shall draw no interest after notice is given to the clerk. Orders presented within 10 days after the notice is mailed to the clerk shall be payable in the numerical order of their issuance.
