IASB is now offering the newest editions of its two popular school law resources - the 13th edition of the Illinois School Law Survey and the 2014-2015 Illinois School Code Service. Updated bi-annually, the Law Survey is the most convenient way to access and cross-reference most school law issues. Its question-and-answer format allows readers to find answers to the most commonly-asked questions facing or posed by school superintendents, school boards and the general public. The School Code is current through all of the 2013 legislative session. In addition to a complete index, this book also carries a large number of additional statutes pertinent to public schools. Each copy comes with a CD version that carries the full text of the Code, plus annotations with case law and other references, all ISBE rules and the text of court cases cited in the annotations.
This issue of the Journal recalls the tornado outbreak of November, 2013, and highlights the response from the educational community to the expected and unexpected impacts of natural disasters. Also featured are the top 10 tips for running a "good" board meeting.
Learn about the new initiative urging districts to StandUp4PublicSchools via videotaped messages, and find out about a new poll from PDK/Gallup that shows 56 percent of Americans want school boards to maintain local control over what schools teach. Coverage also includes: a Conference Preview, ACT scores, a strike, School Board Members Day, November referenda, election deadlines in the new Annual School Calendar, and revisions to the IASB vision/mission statement.
Compiled each week during sessions of the General Assembly and as needed during off-session times, Alliance Legislative Reports summarize major legislative activities and bills of interest to school leaders. Read the latest ALR here (7/15/14).
