Short description: 
SCH CD-CHARTER SCHOOL TEACHERS                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Charter Schools Law in the School  Code.   Replaces  a      
   provision  requiring  charter  school  employees  to  have  a separate      
   bargaining unit with a provision that those employees may either  form      
   a new bargaining unit or remain part of an existing bargaining unit of      
   employees  of  the  school  district  in  which  the charter school is      
   located.  Provides that upon expiration of the leave of absence period      
   granted by a school board to a teacher who accepts employment  with  a      
   charter school, the teacher, if he or she elects rather than resigning      
   to  return  to the school district, must return to a teaching position      
   requiring certification or to the  position  previously  held  by  the      
   teacher,  unless  the  teacher  and  the school board otherwise agree.      
   Provides that  individuals  employed  in  instructional  positions  by      
   charter  schools  shall,  if  they are not certified under a specified      
   Article of the School Code, be certified by  an  approved  alternative      
   certification program established by law.  Effective immediately.
