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.

105 ILCS 5/10-20.5a

    (105 ILCS 5/10-20.5a) (from Ch. 122, par. 10-20.5a)
    Sec. 10-20.5a. Access to high school campus.
    (a) For school districts maintaining grades 10 through 12, to provide, on an equal basis, and consistent with the federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act, access to a high school campus and student directory information to the official recruiting representatives of the armed forces of Illinois and the United States, and State public institutions of higher education for the purpose of informing students of educational and career opportunities if the board has provided such access to persons or groups whose purpose is to acquaint students with educational or occupational opportunities available to them. The board is not required to give greater notice regarding the right of access to recruiting representatives than is given to other persons and groups. In this Section, "directory information" means a high school student's name, address, and telephone number.
    (b) If a student or his or her parent or guardian submits a signed, written request to the high school before the end of the student's sophomore year (or if the student is a transfer student, by another time set by the high school) that indicates that the student or his or her parent or guardian does not want the student's directory information to be provided to official recruiting representatives under subsection (a) of this Section, the high school may not provide access to the student's directory information to these recruiting representatives. The high school shall notify its students and their parents or guardians of the provisions of this subsection (b).
    (c) A high school may require official recruiting representatives of the armed forces of Illinois and the United States to pay a fee for copying and mailing a student's directory information in an amount that is not more than the actual costs incurred by the high school.
    (d) Information received by an official recruiting representative under this Section may be used only to provide information to students concerning educational and career opportunities and may not be released to a person who is not involved in recruiting students for the armed forces of Illinois or the United States, or State institutions of higher education.
    (e) By January 1, 2024, student directory information shall be made electronically accessible through a secure centralized data system for official recruiting representatives of the armed forces of Illinois and the United States, and State public institutions of higher education.
