Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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 5/32-1) (from Ch. 122, par. 32-1)
    Sec. 32-1. May vote to organize under general law.
    (a) Any special charter district may, by vote of its electors, cease to control its school under the Act under which it was organized, and become part of the school township or townships in which it is situated. Upon petition of 50 voters of the district, presented to the board having the control and management of the schools, the board shall order submitted to the voters at an election to be held in the district, in accordance with the general election law, the question of "organizing under the general school law". The secretary of the board shall make certification to the proper election authority in accordance with the general election law. If, however, a majority of the votes cast at any such election in any school district subject to Sections 32-3 through 32-4.11 is against organizing the district under the general school law, the question may not again be submitted in the district for 22 months thereafter, and then only upon petition signed by at least 2% of the voters of the school district. Notice shall be given in accordance with the general election law, which notice shall be in the following form:
NOTICE OF REFERENDUM
    Notice is hereby given that on (insert date), a referendum will be held at.... for the purpose of deciding the question of organizing under the general school law. The polls will be opened at .... o'clock ..m and closed at .... o'clock ..m.
Signed .....

    If a majority of the votes cast on the proposition is in favor of organizing under the general school law, then the board having the control and management of schools in the district, shall declare the proposition carried.
    When such a proposition is declared to have so carried, the board of education shall continue to exercise its powers and duties under the general school law. Each member of the board of education selected under the provisions of the special charter shall continue in office until his term has expired. Before the term of each of these members expires, the board shall give notice of an election to be held on the date of the next regular school election, in accordance with the general election law to fill the vacancy which is created. Nomination papers filed under this Section are not valid unless the candidate named therein files with the county clerk or the county board of election commissioners, as the case may be, of the county in which the principal office of the school district is located a receipt from the county clerk showing that the candidate has filed a statement of economic interests as required by the Illinois Governmental Ethics Act. Such receipt shall be so filed either previously during the calendar year in which his nomination papers were filed or within the period for the filing of nomination papers in accordance with the general election law.
    (b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, any special charter district whose board is appointed by the mayor or other corporate authority of that municipality may, by resolution adopted by the corporate authorities of that municipality cease to control its school under the Act under which it was organized, become a part of the school township or townships in which it is situated and become organized under the general school law. If such a resolution is adopted, the board of education shall continue to exercise its powers and duties under the general school law. Each member of the board of education selected under the provisions of the special charter shall continue in office until his term has expired. Before the term of each of these members expires, the board shall give notice of an election to be held on the date of the next regular school election, in accordance with the general election law to fill the vacancy which is created.

105 ILCS 5/32-1.1

    (105 ILCS 5/32-1.1) (from Ch. 122, par. 32-1.1)
    Sec. 32-1.1. Election and powers of board - No provision in special act. In all special charter districts maintaining schools under any general school laws, where there is no provision in the special Acts creating such districts for the election of boards of education as otherwise provided, there shall be elected, in lieu of the school directors as now provided, a board of education, to consist of 7 members to be elected at the time and in the manner as provided by the general election law for the election and qualification of boards of education in other cases. In any district having a population of more than 100,000 but less than 2,000,000 such board may be increased in size to 11 members upon adoption by a majority of electors residing in the district and voting on the question in a referendum as provided in this Section. Such question shall be submitted to the electors at an election upon a resolution adopted by the Board. Members shall be elected biennially in the school district, whose term of office shall be 4 years, and there shall also be elected in each odd-numbered year a president of the board. Following the first such election, those members elected, other than the president, shall, by lot, determine 3 to serve 2 years and 3 to serve 4 years; thereafter, all terms shall be 4 years. In other cases, however, if 4 members, other than the president, are elected in 1983, then those elected shall, by lot, determine one to serve for 2 years and 3 to serve 4 years; thereafter all terms shall be 4 years. In neither case shall such determinations affect the biennial selection of the president. At the first regular school election after the adoption by the district electors of a question as provided in this Section increasing the size of the board in those districts entitled to exercise an option for and elect an 11 member board, 4 additional members shall be elected and shall determine by lot 2 to serve for 2 years and 2 for 4 years. Their successors shall serve for a 4 year term. In case of an 11 member board already in existence, if 7 members, other than the president, are elected in 1983 then those members elected shall, by lot determine one to serve 2 years and 6 to serve 4 years. Terms thereafter shall be 4 years. The board of education shall have all the powers and duties of trustees of schools in school townships and the powers and duties of boards of education in districts having a population of not fewer than 1,000 and not more than 500,000 as provided by this Act.
    The day upon which the election provided for in this section is to be held is subject to the provisions of the general election law.

    (105 ILCS 5/32-1.5) (from Ch. 122, par. 32-1.5)
    Sec. 32-1.5. Election of board of education. Any special charter district may, by vote of its electors, determine to elect, instead of the managing board provided for by its special charter, a board of education which shall be elected at the time and in the manner as boards of education under Article 10 of this Act; but such determination shall not affect any other powers or duties conferred or imposed by the special charter.
    Upon petition of 10% or 200 of the voters, whichever is less, of any such district requesting a referendum therefor, presented to the managing board thereof, the board shall, or upon its own initiative if no such petition has been presented the board may order submitted to the voters at the next regular election, in accordance with the general election law, a proposition to elect a board of education of 3 or 5 or 7 members, as the case may be. The proposition shall be substantially as follows:
--------------------------------------------------------------
    Shall school district.... be governed
 by a board of education of.... members           YES
 to be elected at the time and in the manner  ----------------
 as boards of education under Article 10          NO
 of the School Code?
--------------------------------------------------------------
    If more than one proposition is properly presented to the board, the one first presented shall be submitted to the electors.
    If such proposition receives a majority of all valid votes cast thereon, the change in membership shall be effectuated at the next succeeding regular school election. In the conduct of such election, the managing board shall take such measures as may be necessary to arrange for the election of a board of 3, 5, or 7 members, as the case may be. The new board shall be organized as provided in Article 10 of this Act, except that, if only 5 members are to be elected, 2 (instead of 3) shall be selected by lot for a 2 year term, and if only 3 members are to be elected, then one shall be selected by lot for a 2 year term. In case of a 5 member board already established, if 4 are elected in 1983, then those elected shall by lot determine 2 to serve 2 years and 2 to serve 4 years. All successors, except to fill vacancies, shall be elected for terms of 4 years. In the case of a 5 member board already established, on which the members serve 5 year terms, the member elected in 1981 shall serve a 6 year term. The 2 members elected in 1983 shall serve 6 year terms. The 2 members elected in 1985 shall also serve 6 year terms. All successors, except to fill vacancies, shall be elected for terms of 6 years. As soon as the first new board is organized, the terms of all members of the predecessor board shall terminate.
    In any such school district which determines to elect a new board of education as hereinabove authorized, the number of members on the board may thereafter be changed by following the procedure hereinabove set forth.
    At least 22 months must elapse after the date of an election under this section before any of the above propositions may be again submitted to the electors.
