Short description: 
SCH CD-RESIDENCY-CUSTODY                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code. Deletes a provision which includes  as  a      
   form  of  legal  custody  used  in  determining  a pupil's district of      
   residence custody exercised by an adult who demonstrates that  he  has      
   assumed  and exercises legal responsibility for the pupil and provides      
   the pupil with a regular fixed night-time  abode  for  purposes  other      
   than  to have access to the educational programs of a school district.      
   Also replaces a provision that provides that the residence of a person      
   who has legal custody is deemed to be the residence of the pupil  with      
   language  that  provides that the residence of a pupil is deemed to be      
   the residence of a person who has legal custody of the pupil.               
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Ed.)                      
          It is assumed that since the burden of proof would become more       
          stringent, fewer students will be able to establish legal res-       
          idency outside of their "true" districts of residence.This will      
          have a positive fiscal effect on individual districts that no        
          longer have to serve particular students tuition-free. The size      
          of the effect will vary from district to district and is impos-      
          sible to calculate since no data are collected on the number         
          and whereabouts of students in this situation.                       
          FISCAL IMPACT NOTE (State Board of Ed.)                              
          No change from SBE mandates note.
