Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides that as a prerequisite to receiving a high school diploma, each student entering the 9th grade in the 2005-2006 school year or a subsequent school year must perform 40 hours of community service, unless the student is exempted by the school board. Provides that each school board shall determine what constitutes 40 hours of community service and the criteria for exempting a student from the community service requirement. Provides that a student granted an exemption must complete an alternative assignment. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement.

 Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 Many districts may have to allocate additional non-instructional staff resources to this effort. If on average school districts devote one half of one additional staff per district at an average cost of $20,000, the total cost will be nearly $9 million.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (State Board of Education)
 HB5041 appears to be a service mandate which is eligible for state reimbursement of at least 50% of its costs. However, the legislation is specifically exempt from the State Mandates Act and any cost incurred by school districts is not reimbursable from the state.
