Short description: 
HOUSING-PLACE IN SCHOOL DIST                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Children and Family Services Act, the School Code, and      
   the Housing Authorities  Act.   Requires  DCFS  to  place  school-aged      
   children, 15 years of age or younger, with a family in the same school      
   district  unless  the  benefits  of  continuity are outweighed by some      
   potential harm to the child.  Allows schools to report  families  that      
   show  a  pattern  of  frequent,  random  moves  without  a  reasonable      
   explanation.   Requires  a  housing  authority,  if possible, to place      
   families with school-aged children, 15 years of age or younger, within      
   the same school district if the authority must relocate the family due      
   to renovation or closure of a complex.  Preempts home rule.                 
          HOME RULE NOTE (DCCA)                                                
          HB57 preempts home rule authority.
