Synopsis As Introduced Amends the School Construction Law. Defines "school district" to mean a school district or joint agreement. Provides that, for purposes only of determining a joint agreement's eligibility for an entity included in a school construction project grant or a school maintenance project grant, a joint agreement shall be deemed eligible if one or more of its member school districts satisfy the grant index criteria. Provides that the amount of a school construction project grant to an eligible joint agreement shall be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the needs of the joint agreement in its entirety (instead of using the grant index to calculate the amount). Effective immediately.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Provides that "school district" means a school district or a Type 40 area vocational center or State-designated facility that is jointly owned (instead of a school district or a joint agreement, including a cooperative, joint agreement, or vocational education delivery system established pursuant to the School Code). Changes references from a joint agreement to an area vocational center or State-designated facility.
