As your administrations and boards are wrapping up the year and preparing for next year, we wanted to give you a quick run-down of new and nearly new tasks created by the law that should not be forgotten for next year:
Illinois Education Law
The United States Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued a new Dear Colleague Letter
As discussed in our last update, and pursuant to Section 24A-15 of the Illinois School Code and 23 Ill.Admin.Code 50.300, each school district must have a PERA-compliant evaluation plan for principals and assistant principals in place no later than September 1, 2012.
Welcome to our new and vastly improved website. Have a look around – we hope our new format will be not only easier to follow for you, but also more conducive to how you work. We will continue to post our School Law Advisor newsletters when big changes are happening, and we hope our new blog format will serve to keep you better updated, and give you a reason to keep coming back here.
