New School Laws 2018

This publication is designed to alert school board members, administrators, business officials, and principals to new laws and changes in existing laws made in the year 2017.

The Illinois Statewide School Management Alliance has made every effort to identify which new acts to include. We recognize, however, that one or more acts may have escaped our attention. This publication, therefore, is not intended as a substitute for either a current version of the Illinois Compiled Statutes or legal counsel.

Please note the synopsis of each act is brief and may or may not encompass the full content or impact of the Act. The synopsis is designed to call attention to statutory changes and additions that may merit further research.

Also included in this publication, where applicable, is the IASB Policy Reference Educational Subscription Service (PRESS) information regarding new legislation. If a new law requires action by the school board, the corresponding PRESS policy number will follow the public act information.

To obtain copies of Public Acts

Official copies of acts are filed with the Index Division of the office of the Secretary of State. However, all text of public acts is now available on the General Assembly Web site. The address is: .

How to use this document

Act summaries are organized under subject matter categories, and categories are arranged alphabetically as shown in the Table of Contents. In addition, three indexes are provided.
