Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Meeting Local Educational Needs Law of the School Code. Allows for a petition to request submission of a proposition at a regularly scheduled election for the purpose of voting for or against the division of an existing community unit school district into 2 parts, (i) a compact and contiguous area that is proposed for detachment from the existing district and establishment as a separate community unit school district and (ii) the remainder of the original, existing district. Provides that the original district must have an enrollment of more than 30,000 students and be located in 2 or more municipalities and 2 or more counties and the petition, if successful, must result in 2 community unit school districts, each with an anticipated enrollment of at least 5,000 students. Contains provisions concerning the election area, the referendum, the creation of the new district (including election of a new school board and the powers of that board), the transfer of employment and collective bargaining, the accounting and division of assets, tax rates, transfer students, bonded indebtedness, and limitations on contesting boundary changes and successive petitions. Makes a related change in provisions of the School Code concerning debt limits. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.
