Sch Cd-Unfunded Mandates


Amends the School Code. Until July 1, 2031, provides that a school district is relieved from the requirement to establish and implement certain unfunded mandates for a period of up to 5 years if specified conditions are met. In a provision that prohibits certain unfunded mandates, provides that the provision does not allow a school district or private school to discontinue or modify any law, rule, or regulation pertaining to special education, teacher educator licensure, teacher tenure and seniority, or voter eligibility; to fail to comply with the federal Every Student Succeeds Act; or to discontinue or modify any requirement for student performance data to be a significant factor in teacher or principal evaluations or teachers and principals to be rated using specified categories. Requires a public hearing before discontinuing or modifying a mandate. Sets forth notice procedures and a review process. Provides that if the provisions prohibiting certain unfunded mandates conflict with the State Mandates Act, the provisions prohibiting certain unfunded mandates (instead of the State Mandates Act) shall prevail. Effective July 1, 2021.
