Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(105 ILCS 5/10-22.34b)
(from Ch. 122, par. 10-22.34b)
Utilization of nonlicensed personnel.
To utilize nonlicensed persons, under the direction of a licensed
teacher, for providing specialized instruction related to a
course assigned to the licensed teacher on a regular basis, not
otherwise readily available in the immediate school environment, in the
fields for which they are particularly qualified by reason of their
specialized knowledge or skills. The duration of the instruction shall
be determined by the licensed teacher under whose direction the
program is conducted in view of the educational need to be satisfied.
Before a nonlicensed person may be utilized for such specialized
instruction, the school board must secure the written approval of the regional
superintendent of schools as to the qualifications of the
particular nonlicensed person, the particular instruction he or she is to
provide, the specific functions to be served, the total number of hours
he or she is to provide such instruction and any compensation to be paid that
person. The State Board of Education
shall prescribe, by
rule, criteria for determining qualifications of such persons and the
nature of specialized instruction for which, and the extent to which,
such persons may be used.
Nothing in this Section shall prevent the utilization of a person
with specialized knowledge or experiences as a guest lecturer or
resource person in the classroom under the direct supervision of a licensed
teacher assigned to the classroom on a regular basis, with
prior approval of the school administration.
