Synopsis As Introduced

Provides that a partnership agreement entered into between a community college district and a school district shall allow a high school student who does not otherwise meet the community college district's academic eligibility requirements to enroll in a dual credit course, but only for high school credit. Makes changes concerning the professional development plans of instructors and the information the Illinois Community College Board must annually report.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
110 ILCS 27/16

Adds a requirement to high school and community college partnership agreements. Adds a provision limiting a high school student who does not otherwise meet the community college district's academic eligibility requirements to enrollment in a dual credit course taught at a high school. Adds a provision permitting instructors, in coordination with their higher learning partner, to differentiate instruction by credit section. Changes the date by which an instructor who does not meet the faculty credential standards allowed by the Higher Learning Commission can raise his or her credentials to January 1, 2025 (instead of January 1, 2026). Changes the date regarding the maximum length of the professional development plan to January 1, 2028 (instead of January 1, 2029). Provides that the Board of Higher Education shall also report information concerning the professional development plans of instructors. Adds separate provisions concerning instructors who enter into a professional development plan on or after January 1, 2023. Removes the amendatory language concerning instructors in career and technical education courses. Adds a provision requiring that within 15 days after entering into or renewing a partnership agreement, an institution of higher learning shall notify its faculty of the agreement, including access to copies of the agreement if requested.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds provisions requiring that school districts and community colleges annually assess disaggregated data pertaining to dual credit course enrollments, completions, and subsequent postsecondary enrollment and performance to the extent feasible. Adds a provision requiring that high schools establish procedures, prior to the first day of class, to notify all individual high school students enrolled in a mixed enrollment dual credit course that includes students who have and have not met the criteria for dual credit coursework of whether or not they are eligible to earn college credit for the course.
