Eleventh Edition of Illinois School Law Survey is PublishedJuly 12, 2010
The Illinois School Law Survey, written by attorney Brian A. Braun and published every other year by the Illinois Association of School Boards, is now in its Eleventh Edition (2010).
The book provides a convenient resource written in plain English for answering the legal questions of educators and laymen. A CD ROM version that accompanies the book provides rapid access to the laws governing Illinois public schools and represents an "all-in-one" legal resource.
Both the book and CD ROM present information in a question-and-answer format in 27 chapters on such topics as student discipline, the educational program, education of the handicapped, teacher employment, collective bargaining, school elections, public meetings, budgeting, property taxes and state aid. Answers are based on state and federal statutes and case law in force and reported as of Jan. 1, 2010, and administrative rules and regulations current as of Dec. 15, 2009.
In addition to an extensive Table of Contents, the book offers two other features that enable the reader to find information quickly:
- A Quick Reference Index provides a detailed listing of topics and sub-topics arranged alphabetically with a list of the questions where the matter is discussed in the book.
- Court cases are compiled in a table in alphabetical order by name of plaintiff. Each court decision is listed in the table with full legal citations and a note as to where the decision is referenced in the book.
Each copy of Illinois School Law Survey comes with an "all-in-one" legal reference -- a CD ROM version produced for IASB by LexisNexis. The CD 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 and is designed to provide rapid navigation between entries in the index and relevant material in the text.
The CD is licensed for use on one computer workstation. Additional licenses for installation on a local network are available for $7.
