(105 ILCS 5/2-3.77) (from Ch. 122, par. 2-3.77)
    Sec. 2-3.77. Temporary relocation expenses.
    (a) The State Board of Education may distribute loan or grant moneys appropriated for temporary relocation expenses incurred by school districts as a result of fires, earthquakes, tornados, mine subsidence, or other natural or man-made disasters which destroy school buildings, or as a result of the condemnation of a school building under Section 3-14.22. The State Board of Education shall by rule prescribe those expenses which qualify as temporary relocation expenses and the manner of determining and reporting the same, provided that such expenses shall be deemed to include amounts reasonably required to be expended for the lease, rental, and renovation of educational facilities and for additional transportation and other expenses directly associated with the temporary relocation and housing of the normal operations, activities, and affairs of a school district.
    (b) Except as provided in subsection (c), no moneys appropriated to the State Board of Education for purposes of distribution in accordance with the provisions of this Section shall be distributed to any school district unless the school board of such district, as an express condition of any such distribution, agrees to levy the tax provided for by Section 17-2.2c at the maximum rate permitted thereunder and to pay to the State of Illinois for deposit in the Temporary Relocation Expenses Revolving Grant Fund (i) all proceeds of such tax attributable to the first year and succeeding years for which the tax is levied after moneys appropriated for purposes of this Section have been distributed to the school district, and (ii) all insurance proceeds which become payable to the district under those provisions of any contract or policy of insurance which provide reimbursement for or other coverage against loss with respect to any temporary relocation expenses of the school district; provided, that the aggregate of any tax and insurance proceeds paid by the school district to the State pursuant to this Section shall not exceed in amount the moneys distributed to the school district pursuant to this Section.
    (c) The State Board of Education may, from appropriations made for this purpose from the Temporary Relocation Expenses Revolving Grant Fund, make grants that do not require repayment to school districts that qualify for temporary relocation assistance under this Section to the extent that the amount of temporary relocation expenses incurred by a district exceeds the amount that the district is able to repay to the State through insurance proceeds and the tax levy authorized in Section 17-2.2c.
    (d) The Temporary Relocation Expenses Revolving Grant Fund is hereby established as a special fund within the State treasury. Appropriations and amounts that school districts repay to the State under subsection (b) of this Section shall be deposited into that Fund. If the balance in that Fund exceeds $3,000,000, the excess shall be transferred into the General Revenue Fund.
    (e) The State Board of Education shall promulgate such rules and regulations, not inconsistent with the provisions of this Section, as are necessary to provide for the distribution of loan and grant moneys and for the repayment of loan moneys distributed pursuant to this Section.
