On July 10, 2006, Governor Rod R. Blagojevich signed Senate Bill 2795 into law, creating Public Act 94-1019. Public Act 94-1019 allows new options for school district reorganization that have not been available in the past, while retaining current existing options, and standardizes the reorganization process from petition requirements to referendum vote. Public Act 94-1019 also eliminates duplicate sections of the School Code by consolidating four of the school district reorganization School Code Articles (Articles 7A, 11A, 11B, and 11D) into a new Article 11E.
The State Board of Education has developed the following documents to help school districts and local citizens interested in investigating school district reorganization options under new Article 11E. A link to Public Act 94-1019 is also included below.
