Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(105 ILCS 230/5-30)
Priority of school construction projects.
The State Board of
Education shall develop standards for the determination of priority needs
concerning school construction projects based upon approved district facilities
plans. Such standards shall call for prioritization based on
the degree of need and project type in the following order:
(1) Replacement or reconstruction of school buildings
destroyed or damaged by flood, tornado, fire, earthquake, mine subsidence, or other disasters, either man-made or produced by nature;
(2) Projects designed to alleviate a shortage of
classrooms due to population growth or to replace or rehabilitate aging school buildings;
(3) Projects resulting from interdistrict
reorganization of school districts contingent on local referenda;
(4) Replacement, rehabilitation, or reconstruction of
school facilities determined to be severe and continuing health or life safety hazards;
(5) Alterations necessary to provide accessibility
for qualified individuals with disabilities; and
(6) Other unique solutions to facility needs.
Except for those changes absolutely necessary to comply with the changes made to subsection (c) of Section 5-25 of this Law by Public Act 96-37, the State Board of Education may not make any material changes to the standards in effect on May 18, 2004, unless the State Board of Education is specifically authorized by law.
