    AN ACT concerning education.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The School Code is amended by changing Section
14-1.11a as follows:
    (105 ILCS 5/14-1.11a)  (from Ch. 122, par. 14-1.11a)
    Sec. 14-1.11a. Resident district; student. The resident
district is the school district in which the student resides
        (1) the parent has legal guardianship but the location
    of the parent is unknown; or
        (2) an individual guardian has been appointed but the
    location of the guardian is unknown; or
        (3) the student is 18 years of age or older and no
    legal guardian has been appointed; or
        (4) the student is legally an emancipated minor; or
        (5) an Illinois public agency has legal guardianship
    and such agency or any court in this State has placed the
    student residentially outside of the school district in
    which the parent lives.
    In cases where an Illinois public agency has legal
guardianship and has placed the student residentially outside
of Illinois, the last school district that provided at least
45 days of educational service to the student shall continue
to be the district of residence until the student is no longer
under guardianship of an Illinois public agency or until the
student is returned to Illinois.
    The resident district of a homeless student is the
Illinois district in which the student enrolls for educational
services. Homeless students include individuals as defined in
the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act.
    The State Superintendent of Education may determine that
the location of the parent or guardian of a student is unknown
after considering information submitted from the school
district that last enrolled the student or from the school or
special education facility providing special education and
related services to meet the needs of the student. The
information submitted to the State Superintendent of Education
must include an affidavit from that school district's
superintendent or the facility's director attesting that the
location of the parent or guardian is unknown and 4 items of
documentary evidence that a minimum of 4 separate attempts
were made to locate the parent or guardian. Any determination
by the State Superintendent of Education that the location of
a parent or guardian is unknown is final. However, any
determination made by the State Superintendent of Education is
subject to review and reconsideration any time a parent's or
guardian's location becomes known.
