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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(a) To establish special classes for the instruction (1)
of persons of age 21 years or over and (2) of persons less than age 21
and not otherwise in attendance in public school, for the purpose of
providing adults in the community and youths whose schooling has been
interrupted with such additional basic education, vocational skill
training, and other instruction as may be necessary to increase their
qualifications for employment or other means of self-support and their
ability to meet their responsibilities as citizens, including courses of
instruction regularly accepted for graduation from elementary or high
schools and for Americanization and high school equivalency testing review classes.
The board shall pay the necessary expenses of such classes out of
school funds of the district, including costs of student transportation
and such facilities or provision for child-care as may be necessary in
the judgment of the board to permit maximum utilization of the courses
by students with children, and other special needs of the students
directly related to such instruction. The expenses thus incurred shall
be subject to State reimbursement, as provided in Section 2-12.5 of the Public Community College Act. The
board may make a tuition charge for persons taking instruction who are
not subject to State reimbursement, such tuition charge not to exceed
the per capita cost of such classes.
The cost of such instruction, including the additional expenses herein
authorized, shall be assumed in its entirety
from funds appropriated by the State to the Illinois Community College
Board as provided in Section 2-12.5 of the Public Community College Act.
Illinois Community College Board shall establish
the standards for the
courses of instruction reimbursed
under this Section. The Illinois Community College Board shall supervise the
administration of the programs. The Illinois Community College Board shall
determine the cost
of instruction in accordance with standards established by the Illinois
Community College Board, including therein
other incidental costs as herein authorized, which shall serve as the basis of
State reimbursement in accordance with the provisions of the Public Community College Act. In the
approval of programs and the determination of the cost of instruction, the
Illinois Community College Board shall provide
for the maximum utilization of federal
funds for such programs.
(j) In addition to claiming reimbursement under this Section, a school
district may claim evidence-based funding under Section 18-8.15 for any student
under age 21 who is enrolled in courses accepted for graduation from elementary
or high school and who otherwise meets the requirements of Section 18-8.15.
