Illinois School Law Book UpdatedJune 19, 2008
The Illinois Association of School Boards has published an updated Tenth Edition of its top-selling book, Illinois School Law Survey.
The book, which is updated bi-annually, 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.
Answers are based on state and federal statutes and case law in force and reported as of Jan. 1, 2008, and administrative rules and regulations current as of Dec. 15, 2007.
The book has several other key features that enable readers to find what they need quickly:
- Table of Contents lists the broad topics covered in each chapter. In many cases, these topic headings lead directly to the desired information
- Table of court cases arranged in alphabetical order by name of plaintiff. All court decisions cited are listed in the table with full legal reference
- Quick Reference Index is a 34-page listing of subjects arranged alphabetically
- CD ROM "All in One Legal Reference," produced for IASB by LexisNexis, carries the entire text of the book's 27 chapters, Table of Cases and Quick Reference Index - plus features the full text of most statutes, regulations and court decisions cited in the text. The CD runs with any standard Web browser on any PC or Apple Macintosh computer.
