Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to implement and administer a teacher scholarship program, to be known as the Teach Illinois Scholarship Program. Defines "area of identified staff shortage" as a school district in which the number of teachers is insufficient to meet student or school district demand or a subject area for which the number of teachers who are qualified to teach that subject area is insufficient to meet student or school district demand, as determined by the State Board of Education. Requires the Commission to annually award scholarships to persons preparing to teach in areas of identified staff shortages. Requires the recipient to accept employment to teach in an elementary or secondary school in Illinois in an area of identified staff shortage for a period of at least 5 years.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the scholarships awarded through the Teach Illinois Scholarship Program are subject to appropriations to the Illinois Student Assistance Commission by the General Assembly.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the scholarships shall be awarded (rather than issued) to qualified applicants. Provides that the Illinois Student Assistance Commission shall (rather than may) make tuition payments directly to the qualified institution of higher learning that the recipient attends for the prescribed courses.
