(55 ILCS 5/5-1102)
(from Ch. 34, par. 5-1102)
Injuries caused by regional board of school trustees
member; indemnification. In case any injury to the person or property of
another is caused by a member of the regional board of school trustees
while the member is engaged in the performance of his or her duties as
trustee, the county or counties in whose behalf the member is performing
his or her duties as trustee may indemnify the member for any judgment
recovered against the member as the result of such injury, except where the
injury results from the wilful misconduct of the member.
If the regional board of school trustees is in a multi-county educational
service region, the power to indemnify imposed by this Section shall extend
to each county on a pro-rata basis, calculated by dividing the equalized
assessed valuation of each county by the equalized assessed valuation of
the educational service region.
