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.
