SCH CD-TEACHERS CERTIFICATION                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code. Makes  technical  changes  in  a  Section      
   concerning teacher certification.                                           
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
          Deletes reference to:                                                
          105 ILCS 5/21-2b                from Ch. 122, par. 21-2b             
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/21-2                 from Ch. 122, par. 21-2              
          105 ILCS 5/21-14                from Ch. 122, par. 21-14             
          105 ILCS 5/21-16                from Ch. 122, par. 21-16             
        Deletes everything after the enacting clause.  Amends the Teacher      
   Certification Article of the School Code.  Instead  of  requiring  the      
   successful   completion   of   the   Standard   Teaching   Certificate      
   Examinations,  provides  that  persons may be issued Standard Teaching      
   Certificates if they successfully complete certain requirements before      
   the expiration of their Initial Teaching Certificates. In the  Section      
   concerning  registration  and  renewal  of certificates, makes changes      
   concerning the requirements for renewing a Valid and  Active  Standard      
   Teaching Certificate, continuing professional development purposes and      
   activities,  not  requiring  certain  materials  submitted  to a local      
   professional development committee to be  maintained,  the  number  of      
   certificate  renewal  plans  a  downstate committee is responsible for      
   annually, and administrative costs associated with conducting meetings      
   of the committee. Effective immediately.                                    
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          105 ILCS 5/21-7.1               from Ch. 122, par. 21-7.1            
          105 ILCS 5/21-27                                                     
        Further  amends  the   School   Code.   Provides   that   if   an      
   administrative  certificate  holder  also  holds  a Standard or Master      
   Teaching  Certificate,  the  validity  period  of  the  administrative      
   certificate shall be changed to coincide with the validity  period  of      
   the  Standard or Master Teaching Certificate. Changes the procedure to      
   renew an administrative certificate by requiring a certificate  holder      
   to  develop  a  certificate renewal plan for satisfying the continuing      
   professional  development  required  for  renewal.  In   the   Section      
   concerning the Illinois Teaching Excellence Program, provides that the      
   appropriation  shall  be  from  federal funds. Also changes the $3,000      
   one-time payment to a teacher to an annual $3,000 payment and requires      
   a teacher who receives the payment or one of the annual incentives  to      
   be  employed  as  a  teacher  by the school district. These provisions      
   effective July 1, 2002.                                                     
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 3.                                                
        Provides that  certain  of  the  new  requirements  to  renew  an      
   administrative  certificate  differ if the certificate has less than 5      
   years' validity or less than 5 years' validity remaining.
