AN ACT concerning education.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
The Public Community College Act is amended by
adding Section 3-80 as follows:
(110 ILCS 805/3-80 new)
Remediation data sharing agreement.
(a) Beginning January 1, 2024, a community college
district, upon a request from the school district of a high
school located within the boundaries of the community college
district, shall provide individualized disaggregated data on
the enrollment of students in community college remediation
courses from the most recently completed academic year. A
signed remediation data sharing agreement between the school
district and the community college district must be entered
into before sharing remediation data.
(b) The remediation data sharing agreement shall meet all
of the following requirements:
(1) The agreement shall require that the data be
individualized by student and that each student record be
identified with the student's State identification number
and last previous high school within the school district,
as provided by the school district.
(2) The agreement shall provide that each student
record include, at a minimum, any course codes, the course
names or titles, and the academic department for any
courses that are in the department or subject area of
mathematics, reading, English, or communications or any
other course that is designated as remedial.
(3) The agreement shall provide that each student
record include, at a minimum, course codes, course names
or titles, and the academic department for any courses in
any department or subject area in which the student is
enrolled for a given term at the community college that
are noncredit-bearing courses.
(4) The agreement shall specify the format and method
by which the data will be shared with the school district.
(5) The agreement shall provide a timeline for which
the required data shall be provided to the school district
by the community college district, which must be at least
annually and must be within a reasonable amount of time
following the end of the academic year.
(6) The agreement shall provide that the data may not
be used in the evaluation of licensed educators.
(c) If, within 90 calendar days after the school
district's initial request to enter into a remediation data
sharing agreement with the community college district under
this Section, the school district and the community college
district do not reach an agreement on all of the provisions of
a remediation data sharing agreement, then the school district
and community college district shall jointly implement the
provisions of the model remediation data sharing agreement
developed under subsection (d) for those provisions for which
an agreement could not be reached and shall jointly implement
the remaining provisions for which agreement could be reached.
A community college district may combine its negotiations with
multiple school districts to establish one uniform remediation
data sharing agreement to use with all of the school districts
with high schools located within the boundaries of the
community college district or may negotiate individual
remediation data sharing agreements with school districts.
(d) The Illinois Community College Board and the State
Board of Education shall develop a model remediation data
sharing agreement that may be used by school districts and
community college districts under this Section. The model
remediation data sharing agreement shall address all of the
matters set forth in subsection (b) and shall be completed by
January 1, 2024.
(e) The sharing of data under this Section must be in
accordance with the requirements of the federal Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Nothing in this
Section supersedes the federal Family Educational Rights and
Privacy Act of 1974 or rules adopted pursuant to the federal
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 or any
federal or State laws or rules governing student privacy
