House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Chicago School District Article of the School Code. Requires the Department of School Demographics and Planning ("DSP"), at least once every 5 years, to evaluate the enrollment at existing schools in the school district to determine if there is a need to revise existing boundaries. Specifies factors for DSP to consider in its evaluation. Requires DSP to submit a written report of its findings, conclusions, and recommendations to the chief executive officer and the Chicago Board of Education. Requires the report to be made public on the district's website within 30 days after its completion. If it is determined that there is a need to revise any existing boundaries or establish attendance boundaries for new schools, requires DSP to develop and recommend any proposed changes to existing boundaries or proposed boundaries for new schools to the chief executive officer prior to the beginning of the school year in which the changes to existing boundaries or the new boundaries will take effect. Specifies factors to be considered in developing proposed changes to boundaries for existing schools and proposing attendance boundaries for new schools. Requires DSP to develop at least 2 alternatives for each proposed attendance boundary and prepare a report for each alternative with specified factors and considerations. Requires the report to be made public on the district's website within 30 days after its completion. Requires the chief executive officer to review the report, and authorizes the chief executive officer to suggest additional alternatives. Requires the chief executive officer to report to the Board if he or she recommends any changes to existing boundaries or establishing boundaries for new schools. Requires the chief executive officer, if he or she is recommending any changes to existing boundaries or any boundaries for new schools, to provide the Board with the report of the alternatives considered, including data on the specified factors, and requires the chief executive officer to inform the Board of the alternative that is being recommended. Requires the chief executive officer's report to be made public on the district's website within 30 days after its completion. Requires the Board to conduct public hearings on the proposed establishment of or changes to attendance boundaries and the chief executive officer's recommendation prior to taking action on the establishment or revision of any attendance boundaries. Requires the Board to consider the factors of capacity, current and projected racial and ethnic considerations, geographic barriers, travel time and distance, and program considerations in making its decision on the establishment or revision of any attendance boundaries.
