The 2024 Illinois School Code and Related Laws is now available for purchase in the IASB Online Bookstore. This publication is compiled by LexisNexis for IASB. It consists of two volumes. Volume 1 contains the School Code. Volume 2 contains numerous other statutes selected for their relevance to public school governance and administration. An index for both Volumes is included in Volume 2.

This edition covers legislation enacted as of January 1, 2024. Included are selected election  and pension laws, Educational Labor Relations Act, Open Meetings Act, Freedom of Information Act, Disclosure of Economic Interests, Truth in Taxation Act, Local Records Act, Personnel Record Review Act, Prevailing Wage Act, Emancipation of Mature Minors Act, Tort Immunity Act, Gift Ban Act, and School Visitation Rights Act.  

Prior to 2024, this publication was offered as part of a two-year service, which included a Supplement of changes published in the second year. Beginning with this 2024 edition, the publication is offered as a one-time purchase and no Supplement will be issued in 2025. For updates to statutes enacted after January 1, 2024, IASB publishes “New School Laws,” a digest of state laws impacting Illinois public schools enacted each year; and a “Guide to Illinois Statutes Affecting Schools,” which is compiled by the Illinois Council of School Attorneys and serves as a reference tool for Illinois statutes that are not listed in the School Code but affect Illinois school districts. Both publications can be accessed from the IASB website

Illinois School Code and Related Laws is often purchased as a companion to IASB’s recently updated school law Q&A title, Illinois School Law Survey.

The 2024 Illinois School Code and Related Laws may be ordered from the IASB Online Bookstore. The discounted member price is $80 plus $7 per order for shipping. Questions regarding this publication may be emailed to the IASB Communications Department, or phone (217) 528-9688, ext. 1131.
