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.

(from Ch. 122, par. 10-22.4)
Dismissal of teachers.
To dismiss a teacher for incompetency, cruelty, negligence, immorality
or other sufficient cause, to dismiss any teacher on the basis of performance and to dismiss any teacher whenever, in its
opinion, he is not qualified to teach, or whenever, in its opinion, the
interests of the schools require it, subject, however, to the provisions of
Sections 24-10 to 24-16.5, inclusive. Temporary mental or physical
incapacity to perform teaching duties, as found by a medical
examination, is not a cause for dismissal.
Marriage is not a cause of removal.
