Provides that a partial day of attendance may be counted as a full day

beyond the control of the school district that poses a hazardous
threat to the health and safety of pupils. Provides that if a school
building is ordered to be closed by the school board, in consultation
with a local emergency response agency, due to a condition that poses
a hazardous threat to the health and safety of pupils, then the school
district shall have a grace period of 4 days in which the general
State aid claim shall not be reduced so that alternative housing of
the pupils may be located. Further amends the Common School Fund
Article of the School Code. In the Section concerning the requirement
for special equalization and supplementary State aid, removes
provisions concerning a school district that is claiming an
equalization quota. Also makes changes to the provision allowing a
school district to amend and add a specified amount to its State aid
claim if property comprising an aggregate assessed valuation equal to

has not paid taxes on the property. Effective immediately.

on the property, then the district may amend its general State aid
claim (i) back to the inception of the bankruptcy, not to exceed 6
years, in which time those taxes were not paid and (ii) for each
succeeding year that those taxes remain unpaid, by adding to the claim
