Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (20 ILCS 505/8a) (from Ch. 23, par. 5008a)
    Sec. 8a. No otherwise qualified child with a disability receiving special education and related services under Article 14 of The School Code shall solely by reason of his or her disability be excluded from the participation in or be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by the Department.
    The Department, or its authorized agent, shall ensure that a copy of a student's then current individualized education program (IEP) is provided to the school district in which the student is newly placed by the Department. Upon receipt of the IEP, the new school district shall review it and place the student in a special education program in accordance with that described in the IEP.
