Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Section of the School Code concerning tuition for non-resident pupils. With respect to the financing of educational services for an Illinois student under the age of 21 in a residential program designed to correct alcohol or other drug dependencies that are provided by the school district in which the facility is located, provides that the cost of educational services shall be paid by the district of the student's residence (instead of providing that the cost of educational services shall be paid by the district in which the student resides in an amount equal to the cost of providing educational services in a treatment facility). Provides that this funding provision applies to all Illinois students receiving educational services, whether placed pursuant to the School Code or the Juvenile Court Act of 1987, by court order, or by a State agency or whether the student voluntarily enrolls or is enrolled by a parent or guardian. Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 to provide that in instances in which educational services are to be provided to a minor in a residential program designed to correct alcohol or other drug dependencies, costs incurred in the provision of those services must be allocated based on the requirements of the School Code. Effective immediately.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 In the provision of the School Code concerning tuition for non-resident pupils, removes a statutory reference, and provides that the changes made by the amendatory Act apply to all placements in effect on July 1, 2007 and all placements thereafter.
